Throughout the industries, specialists have become all too comfortable in their own field. Engineers calculate away on aircraft and electronics, while biologists experiment away on cell chemistry and genetics. Each of them vital, but all of them isolated.
At Idris Solutions it is our mission to break these boundaries, to open up the vast, unknown avenues that arise when an engineer and a biologist start working together to solve a surgeon’s problems. Sure, we have great knives, and we have great drugs, but it is high time we did better than that.
Our team has a history of tackling biological problems using technology. Over the last two years, we have developed a fully functional micro-stereolithography system that is capable of creating objects with micrometer precision. During this project, we did not shy away from acquiring completely new skills and venturing outside of our usual expertise. Though we have shifted our focus since, we maintain an approach of interdisciplinary cooperation and an eagerness to adopt new skills outside our comfort zone.
Hans Peter Mulder graduated cum laude in Molecular Biology at Leiden University. During his studies he focused on neurophysiology and circadian biology. Despite these highly biology oriented disciplines, he has always maintained an unusual fascination for the technological and engineering aspects. This ultimately resulted in the firm belief that biology and technology should be combined more often, to solve old problems and to create entirely unforeseen opportunities.
Peter I. Wiegman graduated in Aerospace Engineering at the Delft University of Technology, where he primarily pursued his fascination for (human) space exploration. This focus has never been exclusive for him; instead it is merely one of many avenues, driven by the need to propel the advancement of humanity. He is also captivated by the nuances of communication, and next to his studies has made a personal study of sales techniques.
