• University of Applied Sciences Utrecht and QVQ established collaboration on llama antibody technology

University of Applied Sciences Utrecht (HU) has excellent facilities for studies on Chemical Technology and Life Sciences and these facilities can be used by industry. QVQ has a number of very interesting subjects for students of HU in the area of llama antibody technology.

In 2015 a student of HU (Marjolein Kuijpers) worked at QVQ and her internship triggered discussions on more collaboration between HU and QVQ. Recently this has been worked out and the collaboration will cover the areas Bio-informatics/Molecular Modeling, Fermentation technology and Purification and labeling of lama antibodies (VHH).
