Current Experience

  • Molecular Geneticist Leuven, Belgium
    Since October 2012

    Laboratorium for molecular diagnostics of hematological and oncological malignancies, Center for molecular diagnostics, UZ Leuven, Belgium


    Tasks: I’m in charge of the daily functioning of 15 people in an accredited environment. I have the final technical responsibility for the molecular results generated in our routine lab. I need to stay up to date with all new genetic findings in the field of hemato-oncology as well as technical developments in the molecular world. I’m involved in the validation and introduction of novel tests/techniques according to the ISO15189.
