Bart finished his master in Biomedical Engineering in 2011 at the Tissue Engineering group at the University of Twente. Here, he worked on cell analysis by morphological parameters using high-throughput image analysis of cell structures and biostatistics. Some of this work was used for publication (Unadkat et al Biomaterials 2013 Feb; 34(5) ). He did an internship at the VUmc Dermatology under the supervsion of Prof. dr. Sue Gibbs, where he created epidermal skin equivalents used for cytotoxicity testing. Following his master, he went outside academia among others at MIMETAS BV as production manager. Here, he worked on establishing a production facility in the High Tech Factory in Enschede. This to upscale the production of the MIMETAS Organoplate from prototyping to mass production. Thereafter he joined CytoSMART as application specialist for their cell monitoring devices in the marketing/sales team. As Bart was looking for a more research related job, he then joined the Biomedical Photonic Imaging (BMPI) group of Prof. Wiendelt Steenbergen as a researcher. Here he worked on several NWO -TEKNOWLOGY projects. Firstly, the “Chili pepper, and keeping cancer under control” project, where a novel cancer treatment strategy was investigated by bringing circulating tumour cells to the skin surface where they then could be destroyed. Secondly, he worked on the “Sparing Cockerels a one day life” where a non-invasive technique for sexing a chicken embryo without harming the egg shell and embryo was developed and patented.
Bart has joined the Pioneers in Healthcare (PIHC) funded project as a researcher in the “Healing wounds using phototherapy” project. Here in collaboration with MST, ZGT and ICap, the potential of photobiomodulation will be investigated on diabetic wounds. As a side project Bart has started on using Python for data analysis in the biomedical field.
