Behind Clair Scientific
Hugh Simons and Anders Clemen Jakobsen started their work on Clair Scientific in 2020. The pair met at DTU in 2014 when they both worked as postdocs.
While Hugh Simons stayed at DTU to build up a research group on imaging and instrumentation, Anders Clemen Jakobsen moved on to a job in the private sector. In 2018, Hugh Simons received one of the prestigious grants for promising young researchers from the European Research Council—the ERC Starting Grants—for developing a new method for X-ray microscopes. When it became clear that this new imaging method had business potential, Hugh Simons teamed up with Anders Clemen Jakobsen once again. Later, André Bertelsen also joined the team.
Today, Clair Scientific collaborates with researchers from the National Centre for Cancer Immune Therapy at Herlev Hospital, among others.
