Dear Sir or Madam,
I have received a master’s degree (Distinctio) at the University of Antwerp in the field of Biomedical Sciences with a major in Molecular Imaging and a minor in Research (which entails the various and extensive processes concerning (pre)clinical drug development, clinical conduct and protocol development). Furthermore, I received the FELASA (category C) certificate during my education, which allow me to perform and practice in animal experiments.
I therefore have a very broad and extensive knowledge of Imaging topics and all medical domains. I am additionally familiar with FDA/EMA regulations and also possess a theoretical and practical knowledge of GMP, GLP, GCP –ICH and clinical (management) conduct.
Furthermore, I am trilingual as I speak and write Dutch, French and English. I am also very computer savvy (Microsoft Office, Matlab, sharepoint, autohotkey, etc.).
I am assertive, sociable, punctual, orderly and stress resistant which explains why deadlines are no problem for me as they motivate me even more to reach and fulfill my goals to satisfaction.
Additionally I am a very eager and fast learner with an analytical mindset and a preference to problem solving. All features, which are important in Regulatory affairs and the Biotech & Pharma industry.
Based on my education and my experience in other branches I am convinced that I could be a valuable asset, able to contribute to the life sciences market. I look forward to the opportunity to meet and personally discuss my quantifications and candidacy in further detail. Thank you for your time and consideration.
