Jaap Schreurs

“In Biomedical Sciences, you deal with a broad spectrum of theories. You learn how to work on the basis of hypotheses, how to think critically and how to reflect on your own research and that of other people. I also do this in my job. I survey the field, look at the company, hypothesise and test.”
