Ard Ellens studied chemistry at the Utrecht University (Netherlands), with specialisations at the University of Leuven (Belgium) and Delft (Netherlands). He obtained a PhD in the field of solid state chemistry at the Utrecht University.
Dick studied chemical technology at the University of Twente (Enschede, NL) with a specialisation in process technology. He obtained his PhD degree at the same university for the thesis “Hydrodynamic studies of two and three phase systems: Pressure influence.”
Ruben van Heck studied Molecular Life Sciences (BSc) and Bioinformatics (MSc, cum laude) at Wageningen University. Hereafter, he continued at the same university for his doctoral studies at the Laboratory of Systems and Synthetic Biology. His PhD research regarded the use of mathematical models to describe, study, and re-design the metabolism of micro-organisms. He continued his PhD research during a directly following post-doc. As of November 2017 he works at EDP Patent Attorneys.
Hessel has an academic background in Molecular life sciences (BSc, University of Groningen) and Infection biology & Immunology (MSc, Erasmus MC Rotterdam). He performed his doctoral research at the Erasmus MC on the development of antibiotic-nanomedicines for the treatment of lung infections.
Suzanne van Luttikhuizen studied Molecular Science & Technology (BSc, Delft University of Technology and Leiden University) and Chemistry and Business Studies (MSc, Leiden University). For her dissertation she biochemically profiled a set of activity-based-probes for the characterization of cysteine dependent phosphatases at Leiden University.
Alyssa has an academic background in Molecular Life Sciences (BSc & MSc, Wageningen University & Research). For her dissertation she researched safer and improved protective coatings at Trespa International B.V. She subsequently started her doctoral research at the chair group of Organic Chemistry at Wageningen University & Research on the topic of organic synthesis and the functionalization of flat and nanoparticle surfaces
