I am a professional in biotechnology, currently I’m finishing my PhD. What I love about biotech is how it brings products/solutions to the market. As a hands-on and very enthusiastic person, I love coordinating projects and stimulating all partners involved. Therefore I would like to continue my career as a project manager/post doc in the market introduction of new innovative biotech products.
