Aalt Dijkhuizen ill

President of the Executive Board of Wageningen UR, Aalt Dijkhuizen, underwent an operation in July to remove a malignant tumour from his large intestine and is now receiving chemotherapy. Dijkhuizen has said that he will be taking it easier for a while and is working from home. He expects to attend board meetings in Wageningen. In a letter he thanked those who had wished him well and said that he was feeling better after his operation and had got through the first round of chemotherapy. Dijkhuizen is expected to attend the opening of the new campus on 4 September, where he will give a speech.
