Alexander Prinsen & Marc van Bemmel have started a new series of monthly break-out sessions & podcasts: ”Micro-organisms through a different lense“, hosted by Venturecafe Rotterdam. For each session we will invite a guest speaker, specialists in the fields of virology, microbiology and biochemistry. After the session, the conversation will be made available as a podcast below.


Informative videos have been made for various projects. These give an idea of the breadth of subjects with which Orvion is involved.
