entrepreneurship in malaria

January 14, 2011 - 09:40 -- Marit Farenhorst

2011 is going to be an exciting year! I am venturing out of the academic boundaries (i.e. Universities) and will make my way to entrepreneurship. Together with 2 established colleagues I'm setting up a new business/research institute in The Neterlands. Our aim is to create innovative vector control solutions, in particular for disease-endemic countries.
I believe that the gap between academic knowledge and industry is a great niche with ample opportunities. My biggest motivation is to create something more meaningful (in real life) than merely a scientific publication.
Wish me luck!
