Paul de Vries obtained his Master’s degree in Molecular Neuroscience with a major in Science and Society at the University of Amsterdam. His major taught him how to combine both his passion for science with a newfound passion for business and policy. It included courses in business plan writing and business management. He also completed an internship at a company involved in consortium building and program management in translational drug development, during which he researched the reasons for project failure in early drug development.
At Catalyze he has found the perfect context to combine his interest in science, innovation and the drug development process with his enthusiasm for the business side of the biomedical industry.
