Current Experience

  • Lead Scientist Isnes, Belgium
    Since September 2014

    StratiCELL is a project-driven research services provider and aims to ensure the most up-to-date in vitro solutions at the highest scientific standards, with state-of-the-art equipment and technology platforms.

    I am responsible for taking the scientific lead on innovation projects, coming up with new opportunities, developing new R&D projects, assessing the technical feasibility, taking scientific and technical decisions in close collaboration with the team and the CEO, conducting market research and technological watch, creating new collaborations and funding opportunities, and for external and internal communications related to R&D.

    I have a strong background in molecular and cellular biology, cell culture, genomics, immunology, target discovery, epithelial biology and tissue engineering. I am a self-starter who can handle constant priority changes. I actively participate to answer questions "where to go" and "how to get there".
