Ir. Laura Nauta obtained her bachelor’s and master’s degree in biomedical engineering at the University of Twente, with a specialization in advanced biomanufacturing. After her graduation project on 3D-bioprinting for cartilage repair using Hy2Care’s hydrogel platform, Laura joined our team as R&D Scientist in 2019.
Being closely involved in the development of Hy2Care’s first product, Laura took up to the role of Project Manager as of 2022. As such, she is responsible for operational activities in product development, closely collaborating with our partners and suppliers. In addition, as a QA/RA Manager delegate, Laura contributes to quality assurance, implementation, and continuous improvement of Hy2Care’s quality management system.
“The enthusiasm and experience of my colleagues at Hy2Care are a great support to me during working with all aspects of medical device development. After getting to know our hydrogel technology inside out, I now coordinate operational activities and contribute to quality management to ensure continuity and patient safety. The best of it all, especially now the first clinical investigation with our product has started, is to realize the impact of our work: improvement of people’s quality of life.”
