He subsequently moved to the Vrije Universiteit medisch centrum in Amsterdam (The Netherlands), for postdoctoral research with Prof. G. J. Peters getting insight in the biological evaluation of anticancer drugs. In 1998, he joined DSM Research in Geleen (The Netherlands) to work for three years on the enantioselective membrane separation of carboxylic acids with Prof. J. G. de Vries. Afterwards, he worked from 2001 to 2003 in Almería (Spain) at Deretil in the production of β-lactam antibiotics.
