Sanne Hendriks, MSc, PhD


Hi, I’m Sanne.
Nice to meet you!

As a consultant at ttopstart, I help clients structure their idea and challenge them to make it a sound project or business. I love to learn about all the new inventions out there!

I have always been curious about how things work, this let me to wanting to understand the human body in great detail. This let me to study Biomedical Sciences. While I enjoyed working as a scientist I discovered that I got really excited about helping to get these inventions to the market. At ttopstart I can make this come true.

I obtained a BSc and MSc in Biomedical Sciences at Leiden University. Here I focused on malaria and cancer immunology with a minor in Science Based Business. Next, I performed my PhD research in the field of immunology, focusing on kidney transplantation at the Leiden University Medical Center. This project aimed to reduce the need for immunosuppressives after kidney transplantation by infusing mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs). I studied the immune system of these kidney transplantation patients and their response to MSC therapy.

I personally relate to the ttopstart values (Teamwork, Taking Ownership and Passion) because I love that we work together with the client as a team. Together we make ideas a reality. I’m proud when I see the ideas come to life in the real world and benefitting everyone. Yes we did it!
