Associate professor at UMC Utrecht and CTO at Lapara Surgical BV
"As a researcher and product innovator, I don't have the knowledge or expertise to translate a research prototype into business. NLC saw the business opportunity and has the expertise and network to bring the MIA to the clinic. NLC built the Lapara team, combining the complementary expertise of its members, in which I now participate. This way I can focus on my expertise and strengths, while learning a lot from my colleagues, both at Lapara Surgical and at NLC."
