New phase MBI Life Sciences & Health program
As of August 15, Professor Marianne van der Steen has accepted a position at Maastricht University and will be leaving UMC Utrecht. Professor Van der Steen was the source of inspiration for the Executive MBI Life Sciences & Health program which is organized by UMC Utrecht Julius Center, Utrecht University, FlandersBio and the Flemish Institute for Biotechnology (VIB) in Belgium. With Professor Van der Steen’s departure, the MBI Life Sciences & Health program enters a new phase with a Board of Directors from the UMC Utrecht Julius Center, Utrecht University and the Belgian partners FlandersBio and VIB. Professor Van der Steen will still be involved in the program as its advisor and expert consultant. Utrecht Julius Center and its partners are grateful to Professor Van der Steen for her contribution to the MBI Life Sciences & Health program and wish her good luck with a new challenge in the field of Regenerative Medicine.
The executive MBI program was launched in 2014 to support entrepreneurs in the Life Sciences and Healthcare industry in their efforts to accelerate their ventures to a global scale. Through the MBI Life Sciences & Health program, participants gain access to personal coaching, investor pitches in the U.S. and Europe, an excellent international network and a top education, partly at universities in the U.S. such as Harvard Business School. Preparations for the start of the next program with new entrepreneurs are in full swing.
