Hi, I’m Sander.
Nice to meet you!
At ttopstart, I combine my broad education in biomedical sciences and practical experience in oncology and stem cell research to support scientists, innovators and entrepreneurs.
As a consultant I interact with a diverse type of clients to bring their new ideas into reality. I like to be involved early in the process, so that I can help strengthen the idea or business case, help find the right partners, and turn that into a successful application so that the research that we planned for can actually be performed.
I performed my PhD research in laboratories at both the Hubrecht Institute, Utrecht and the Netherlands Cancer Institute, Amsterdam. For this, I investigated how tumor cells can exchange extracellular vesicles, which enables cancer cells to take advantage of each other’s divergent properties, influencing tumor growth and metastasis. I received my education from Utrecht University, where I acquired a Bachelor’s in Biology and a Master (cum laude) in Biomedical Sciences, for which I also worked at the University of California, San Francisco.
I ask my clients lots and lots of questions. This helps me to understand their ideas best in order to co-create the strongest concepts with them.
