Prof. Patricia Dankers, full professor of Biomedical Materials & Chemistry at the department of Biomedical Engineering and the Institute for Complex Molecular Systems of Eindhoven University of Technology, has joined the Scientific Advisory Board of Hudson River Biotechnology (HRB). Prof. Dankers is internationally renowned for her fundamental research on supramolecular biomaterials for regenerative medicine applications. One important research line in her group deals with the development of synthetic extracellular materials for the culture of animal and human cells. In 2021, her research focus has expanded to include the use of biomedical techniques and materials to cultivate and characterize cultured plant cells. Prof. Dankers has been awarded various grants and awards, such as the KNCV Gold Medal and recently the Ammodo Science Award for fundamental research.
Prof. Dankers will advise Hudson River Biotechnology on the design, development and implementation efforts with regard to automation and scaling of the TiGER workflow.
