PERSONAL STATEMENT

I am a structured, proactive and strategy-oriented tumor biologist with an outgoing personality and experience in research, communication and sales. With my flexible personality, project management skills and extreme interest in clinical research, I am seeking a position with new challenges, where I can use my expertise to make a difference.
