R&D Associate Scientist
ProDigest is a spin-off company from Ghent University, specialized in the development of laboratory model systems of the human and animal intestinal tract. The use of these unique reactor systems allows ProDigest to have a detailed look inside the body and to simulate each stage of the stomach and intestinal digestion in a laboratory setup. This way, the fate of foods, food ingredients and pharmaceuticals in the intestine and their health effects can be studied in great detail. We are a young and dynamic company in rapid development. ProDigest started its activities as a contract research company, testing actives for food and pharmaceutical industry, and has now developed a mixed structure, consisting of both a contract research group which provides services to customers in the food, feed, and pharmaceutical sector and an R&D group which develops novel biorelevant simulatory technologies that can then be implemented in the contract research.
