Tomas is a PhD candidate at AST. He followed the bachelor’s and master’s programme in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Twente, where his graduation project focused on the maturation of iPSC-derived chondrocytes using mechanical stimulation on a cartilage-on-chip platform. After finishing his master’s in 2021, he got the opportunity at AST to start a PhD where he focuses on the incorporation of the lymphatic system with cardiac tissue on-chip.
