SmB Cafe February 2018

Thursday the 8th

Thank you all for coming to the February edition of SmB Cafe! What we learned: Raman spectroscopy is going to be used for making sure tumors have been adequately removed. By RiverD. Battery capacity can be increased by 50% with porous silicon anodes. By LeydenJar. Besides solid science, many people forget that a solid business plan is also needed to succeed. By Batavia Bioscience.



Raman Guided Spectroscopy

Lars Ottevanger

Our solution to improve tumor surgery is to develop a tool for intra-operative assessment ofresection margins. The technology is based on Raman spectroscopy and measures thedifferences in water concentration between a tumor and its surrounding healthy tissue(Barroso et al., 2016).


Reinventing the battery

Christian Rood

In 2016, Christian Rood teamed up with his co-founder Gabriel de Scheemaker and inventor Dr. Wim Soppe to bring a new anode technology to the market. Join us on the 8th to hear how he turned this scientific invention into a business.


The value of a good business case

Menzo Havenga

Over the past years Menzo Havenga, CEO of Batavia Biosciences has successfully combined science and business. He recently was awarded the title of CEO of the year. Curious how he does it? On the 8th of February Menzo will discuss his work and entrepreneurship in science in general.
