Jan Vonk

Innovation expert and dedicated translator of complex data  

Jan studied Molecular Biology and Biotechnology at the University of Groningen. He continued his studies with a PhD and a postdoc at the University Medical Center of Groningen, where he conducted research into genetic defects that lead to neurodegeneration. As a result, he gathered extensive experience with molecular techniques and data analysis.

Within our company he is responsible for writing reports and developing new analyses. Jan finds it fascinating to see how biological systems have evolved into robust and flexible "machines" that can function under many different conditions. He likes to figure out how complex biological processes work and translate this into a comprehensible report and practical advice. Within our team, he is highly appreciated for his focused determination and his open and cheerful nature.  

In his spare time, he likes to cycle and play the guitar.
