Having graduated from the University of Utrecht with degrees in Chemistry and Physics (2011), Stefan undertook a PhD focusing the role of SMALP in lipid membrane and membrane protein research. Since joining Polyscope in November 2016, Stefan has been able to apply his pioneering research to driving SMALP to a market-ready value proposition. He is deeply involved in method and product development and, together with the Polyscience team, continues to work on the development of the next generation of SMA solutions that add value to biomedical research.
Pieter has graduate degrees from the University of Hasselt (2010) and KU Leuven (2011) in Industrial Sciences Chemical Engineering and Management respectively. After finishing these degrees, in 2011, Pieter joined Polyscope where he applied both his chemical engineering expertise and wider understanding of industrial trends and developments. Since 2017, he has focused on Polyscience’s SMALP application and market development, enabling higher-quality biomedical research. Over the coming period, Pieter will also help to expand the Polyscience SMALP commercial portfolio and deliver new innovations that add value to the market.
Bart Verbraeken was educated as a pure organic synthesis chemist, focusing on bioactive structures in his Master’s degree. For his PhD (Ghent University, Belgium), he switched his focus to supramolecular chemistry. Here he worked on the synthesis of cyclic imino ethers, their respective polymers, and the post-polymerization modifications of these polymers for a broad range of applications – from biomedical uses to engineering plastics.
