Summary

I'm part of the scientific staff of the DruQuaR (Drug Quality and Registration) group at the faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences of Ghent University. At our lab, the quality aspects of drugs and experiments are of high importance and are assured by implementation of a GMP quality assurance (QA) system. During my research, I use different analytical techniques, mostly HPLC and UPLC-MS. I also gained experience in performing in vivo experiments using radioactively labeled peptides. Beside my research work, I'm responsible for:

- Archive system of electronic and hard-copy reports.

- Update of lab website.

- Communication with external stakeholders.

- HPLC and AAS apparatus and other lab equipment.

- Education: responsible for one of the projects of FaBaP and giving practical sessions to Master students.

Future job interests: Regulatory affairs, Quality Assurance.
