I am Albert Philipse, head of the Van 't Hoff laboratory for Physical and Colloid Chemistry at Utrecht University. I investigate colloids. These are spontaneously moving particles, which we can not see with our naked eye, but nevertheless they strongly influence all kind of products. From milk and mud, to paint and even our human body. With my expertise I might be able to help you to improve for example food and paint. My dream? A collaboration between medicine and colloid science: that could contribute to understanding and preventing diseases.
