Sam van Dun (1987) received his Bachelor degree in Biomedical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in 2011 where he continued with his master in Biomedical Engineering in the research group of Biomedical Chemistry of dr. P.Y.W. Dankers. Here he worked on the improvement of an epithelial-endothelial co-culture on a supramolecular membrane for the development of an bio artificial kidney. Furthermore, he did an internship in the group of prof. M. Cooper, at the Institute of Molecular Bioscience of the University of Queensland in Brisbane (Australia), where he worked on the development of a quick and sensitive read-out for the detection of bacteria in blood using magnetic nanoparticles. For his master thesis he worked in the Chemical Biology group of prof. L Brunsveld at the TU/e on the peptide functionalization of supramolecular systems and the potential of these systems for the imaging of tumors and modulation of protein-protein interactions. After receiving his Master degree in 2014, he started as a PhD to continue his work on the rod-shaped supramolecular Discotics. Within this project we aim to design a dynamic, responsive supramolecular system that can act as a signaling platform for the interaction between proteins to increase our understanding about biomolecular architectures and eventually to mimic these systems.
