Recorded at the Pivot Park in Oss, near our subsidiary Oncolines, the interview delved into various facets of Eelco’s journey, including his educational background in organic chemistry, Symeres’ services and strategy, as well as personal interests such as family and hobbies.

Eelco elaborates on Symeres’ tailored services for biotech and big pharma clients, emphasizing the company’s commitment to providing excellent scientists with the creative freedom necessary to tackle complex chemical challenges.
