Past Experience

  • Associate Scientist Cellular Pharmacology Mechelen, Belgium

    November 2015 --- October 2017

    profiling of small-molecules in early Drug Discovery up to Preclinical candidate delivery via biochemical and cellular Assays



  • Student scientific researcher Leuven, België

    October 2013 --- July 2014

    master thesis Research project : design and implementation of a In Vivo Protein - Protein interaction sensor in the opportunistic fungus candida albicans. 

    aim : produce recombinant candida albicans strains expressing fragments of a genetically splitted green fluorescent Protein (gfp) fused c-terminally to target genes. test whether the target Proteins interact with one another by Fluorescence Microscopy. if target Proteins interact, the fused gfp fragments recombine and reconstitute a native-like gfp. the target Proteins can then be localized to a cellular compartment, in which the interaction takes place,  by Fluorescence Microscopy

  • Student scientific Researcher KU Leuven

    February 2013 --- April 2013

    master Research internship in the Laboratory for neuronal networks and regeneration (ku leuven). confocal microscopic Analysis of retinal ganglion Cell degeneration provoked by n-methyl-d-aspartate injection of mouse retinas - a glaucoma model. 

    duties: dissection of wholemount mouse retinas - immunohistochemical staining of brn3a (a retinal ganglion Cell-specific marker) - visualization of the brn3a marker by confocal laser scanning Fluorescence Microscopy - producing high quality images of retinal ganglion Cell population in retinas via brn3a - digital counting of retinal ganglion cells via axiovision.
