Experience

Vincent graduated with a MSc degree in Medical Biology from the University of Amsterdam, where he also obtained a PhD in Biochemistry. His doctoral research focused on the phospholipid flippase ATP8B1 and its role in intracellular trafficking. This work resulted in three first-authored experimental publications in highly-ranked scientific journals.

Following this Vincent continued to work in academia as a post-doctoral researcher in the Academic Medical Center in Amsterdam. Using direct input from the pharmaceutical industry he developed and studied several cell culture systems that can act as models for drug metabolism and toxicity testing. He also became the main inventor on a patent application for a new improved liver cell line with potential use in a bio-artificial liver system.

Vincent went on to work as an analyst in the Healthcare team of M Ventures, the corporate venture capital arm of Merck KGaA, where he performed due diligence on technical, commercial and patented features of new investment proposals in the fields of (immuno-)oncology and immunology.

Prior to joining HGF, Vincent worked in the technology transfer office of the University of Leiden, specifically at the Leiden University Medical Center. Here, his roles included scouting for new (patentable) inventions, IP management, business development, advising on start-ups and investments, licencing and research agreements. During this time he came into contact with many cutting-edge technologies in the field of medical devices, diagnostic methods, software applications, antibodies, and cancer neoepitopes.

At HGF Vincent gained ample experience with patenting agrochemicals and various other subjects that combine chemistry and biology.
