Boaz van Driel, PhD Consultant

Boaz van Driel PhD received his academic degrees at the Utrecht University. During his BSc in Biomedical Sciences, he took a keen interest in immunology because of its wide applicability in (bio)medical sciences. He pursued a MSc in Immunology. The ensuing dissertational research brought him to the Harvard Medical School where he studied functions of a family of immune receptors (SLAM family receptors) in phagocytic cells at the Center for Life Sciences. He successfully defended his thesis in October 2015. Having returned to the Netherlands, Boaz focuses his efforts to materialize the potential that the vast amount of life science ideas has in order to get the science to where it matters most – to patients. He is convinced that the best way to do this is through innovative concepts that are fleshed out by driven and creative companies. As a consultant at ttopstart, Boaz is involved in project management and support of funding subsidies to research and biotech.
