Hossein is the founder of AZAR Innovations. Working with organs on chips since 2013, his passion is to enable biomedical scientists use New Approach Methodologies (NAMs) more efficiently. He received his PhD in Biomedical/Mechanical Engineering in 2018 in the group of prof. Jaap den Toonder at Eindhoven University of Technology.
He then joined the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (TNO) in collaboration with the department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at Utrecht University to develop intestine, intestine-microbiome and multi-organ on a chip models for pharmaceutical applications.
Leading the technical developments at TNO, Hossein and his colleagues invented the Intestinal Explant Barrier Chip (IEBC) currently used for contract research services. Seeing a gap between different disciplines, Hossein founded AZAR Innovations in 2021 with the aim to make organ on a chip available for everybody.
