|Dr. Henk-Jan Joosten|
Managing director (CEO)
Dr. H.J. Joosten is one of the founders of Bio-Prodict. He got a masters degree in bio-informatics in 2002 at the Centre of Molecular and Bio-molecular Informatics (CMBI) where he worked on the generation of a protein super-family database for the nuclear receptor super-family. He completed his PhD in 2006 at the Wageningen University where he developed 3DM. He continued the development of 3DM during a post-doctoral period till December 2007. From the start of 2008 he focused on the foundation of Bio-Prodict resulting in the startup in May 2008.
|Remko K.P. Kuipers MSc.|
Remko Kuipers obtained his bachelor of Information and Communication Technology with specialization software development at the Avans institute of professional education in 's Hertogenbosch in 2005. His internship was done at the Laboratory of Fungal Genomics, Wageningen University where he was involved in the initial design and development of the 3DM platform. He obtained a masters degree in Bio-Informatics at the University of Wageningen in 2007. For his MSc thesis Remko joined the CMBI group of prof. Vriend at the Radboud University in Nijmegen for a project focused on using webservices to assemble protein superfamilies. He has remained involved in 3DM since it's inception, and has been employed by Bio-Prodict since 2009. Remko is currently in the final stages of his PhD that focuses on the design and applications of the 3DM platform.
|Tom van den Bergh MSc.|
Tom van den Bergh finished his bachelor's in bioinformatics in 2007 at the applied university of Leiden, The Netherlands and in 2010 received his Masterís degree bioinformatics at the Wageningen University, The Netherlands. During his studies Tom has worked on the 3DM system which formed the basis of Bio-Prodictís startup in 2008. For his master thesis Tom created a mutation database for Fabryís disease, which is caused by mutations in a human alpha amylase family member. This mutation database was published in Human Genetics. Tom has been working for Bio-Prodict since March 2010.
|Dr. Bas Vroling|
In 2005, Bas got his bachelor's degree in Molecular Life Sciences at the Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands. Bas received his master's degree "with honor" (cum laude) in Bioinformatics in 2007. During his master's Bas worked with Dr. Gijs Schaftenaar in the Computational Drug Discovery group at the Center for Molecular and Biomolecular Informatics (CMBI). Using molecular dynamics Bas investigated ligand binding pocket conformations in the Nuclear Receptor family and this resulted in a thesis titled "The detection of new active site conformations using molecular dynamics and rotamer assignments". Bas completed his PhD thesis ("Data integration in the life sciences - A protein family-based approach") with Professor Gert Vriend at the CMBI in april 2012. During his PhD study Bas investigated novel ways of integrating and disseminating heterogenous data in the life sciences. Since september 2011 Bas is working with Bio-Prodict.
|Tim te Beek BSc.|
Tim te Beek got his bachelor of Information and Communication Technology from the HAN university of applied sciences in Arnhem, specializing in advanced algorithms. Following an internship with prof. Gert Vriend at the Centre for Molecular and Biomolecular Informatics (CMBI) in Nijmegen in 2007, Tim joined the CMBI as full-time developer on Project Hope in early 2009. Late 2009 Tim switched over to the Netherlands Bioinformatics Centre's Bioinformatics Research Support team, working on a wide variety of projects resulting in numerous publications. Tim joined Bio-Prodict in April 2013.
