ABOUT THE SESSION

cropped mba.pngDuring this series of explorative dialogues, we look at our natural world from different
perspectives and will discover how it impacts how we look at life sciences, biotechnology
and environmental sciences.

In this episode we will investigate how Microbes deal with PFAS and heavy metals? Why and how do the microbes do it? And what can we learn about their and even our own metabolism.

Special Guest: Peter Jaffé (Princeton University)

About the Series
What if we would be able to zoom out? Leaving the microscope and our traditional human
perspective on microbes behind for a minute. What would happen if we look at microbes
as important players in a much broader system? And as such changing our perspective to
that of Spaceship Earth and the role of a microbes and viruses in the web of life? What
lessons can we draw from nature’s logic on how Spaceship Earth operates? How can we
learn from microbes to make our world more sustainable?

Alexander Prinsen (Managing Partner/Owner Scope Matters) and Marc van Bemmel (CEO/Owner Orvion BV) are curious to know what questions and insights on a different level of abstraction could lead to. Together with specialists in the field of virology, microbiology and biochemistry the hosts will take us on a journey into an unknown world of interesting insights. Combining insights and working towards cross disciplinary solutions and the essential questions we might have been overlooking. And who knows we might discover one or two innovative applications along the way.

About Masters of Beautiful Achievements
The Masters of Beautiful Achievements is where Alexander explores how (eco)logical Thinking (Physics, Biology and Green Chemistry) and (eco)Nomic Doing (the natural bookkeeping system) can be merged to create better and more interesting business cases.
