Nadine Bongaerts in Magazine Future: “No man is as smart as nature”

Nadine Bongaerts is an inspiring synthetic biologist and on the cover of the first ‘Get into Future Magazine’ by TMG, Financiele Telegraaf and SingularityU about nanotech, synthetic biology, fintech, healthtech, blockchain and startups. Nadine herself is passionate about designing life through genetic engineering. She received her Bachelor and Master Degree in Life Science & Technology from Delft University of Technology and Leiden University and is currently pursuing her PhD at French National Institute of Health and Medical Research (INSERM) in Paris where she works on the development of a novel drug screening platform with engineered bacteria for the accelerated discovery of antibiotics. In the magazine she states: “Nature does not make anything that she can not break off. This principle we should follow more, because it is so much more durable, smarter and safer. I hope our profession can contribute to this. And let’s be honest: nature still has the most advanced technology that exists.”
