A company by scientists, for scientists

The Online Scientist is a company by Liesbeth Smit & Stephan van Duin. We’ve been creating websites for scientists since 2012.

Registered in the Netherlands at the chamber of commerce (KVK), number 54993792.

The team

The scientific background of Liesbeth and Stephan, and the good cooperation and interaction with them, has led to a beautiful outcome of this extensive and complex project; the Seven Countries Study. Daan Kromhout, Wageningen University

I have worked closely with Liesbeth and Stephan in the development of a website which featured various research projects. They listened very carefully to our wishes, translated them into designs and texts that were understandable and visibly highly attractive. Their greatest asset is their ability to communicate clearly and constantly address the various professional voices involved by translating between the different audiences. Many thanks to you both.

Liesbeth Smit


After completing my master’s degree in Nutrition and Health at Wageningen University I did research on the effects of trans fatty acids on cardiovascular disease at Harvard School of Public Health and VU University in Amsterdam. At Harvard I gained experience with web design and science communication.

My mission is to make (nutrition) science sexy and easy to understand by using user-friendly and intuitive interactive designs, whether it’s an online academic course, infographic, report or a research website. Science should be accessible and engaging for everyone.

Stephan van Duin


I graduated as a biologist with minors in communication and business management at Wageningen University, while also having specialized in the dissemination of science at the University of California in Berkeley. I enjoy the process of understanding complex matters and being able to present them in a comprehensible way, and I keep up to date with science communication as much as I read up on the latest in life sciences .

My vision is that both science and society can benefit from clear science communication. It doesn’t really matter if your audience is peers, policy makers or the general public – set it up right and the benefits will come.

As a master’s student of biomedical sciences at Radboud University, I have gained a lot of knowledge about human health and disease and am especially fascinated by how diseases develop at a molecular level. Besides my studies, I have had the opportunity to participate in several university projects as a graphic designer. I am looking forward to utilize my creativity and develop my science communication skills over the next few months as an intern at The Online Scientist.

I believe clear communication of science is key to ensure that the obtained knowledge reaches its potential, not only within but also beyond the world of scientists.
