Management Team

The minds behind our company

PL BioScience was founded in 2015 as a spin-off of the RWTH Aachen University. But the story goes back to 2013, when our CEO, Dr. Hatim Hemeda, worked in the stem cell research: He achieved best results with an own-produced human platelet concentrate. Since it was not commercially available, he developed a patent-protected technology for a scale-up production of the culture supplement. PL BioScience holds this patent.

Hatim Hemeda, PhD – CEO

Dr. Hatim Hemeda is a molecular biologist with numerous international academic cooperations in biomedical technology and cellular engineering. Thus, he has more than ten years of experience in immunology, molecular biology, cell biology and stem cell research. Prior to setting up PL BioScience, Hatim Hemeda worked at Helmholtz-Institute for Biomedical Engineering of the RWTH Aachen University. There, he developed protocols that allow for reliable isolation of stem cells by automated methods.
