I am a pharmacist/biotechnologist with an extensive knowledge and experiences in Molecular biology, pharmaceutical biotechnology, quality control (QC) of pharmaceutical products and the development and validation analytical methods such as HPLC and GC.
I earned my degree in pharmacy in 2006 and I have earned my PhD in biotechnology in 2013 from Ghent University (Ghent, Belgium).
Before starting my PhD, I had worked as QC scientist in Aburaihan Pharmaceutical Company (Tehran, Iran) for about 3 years. I was scientific and technical expertise in the quality control (QC) area. Analysis of active ingredient pharmaceuticals (API), semi-finished and finished products, development and validation of analytical methods, data tracking and record keeping, documented all procedures done in compliance with GMPs and daily calibration of laboratory instrumentation according to SOPs were among my main responsibilities.
From January 2014 till October 2014, I have worked as a team leader of the department of genetic and biochemistry of a biomedical laboratory where I obtained leadership, management and supervisory experience with outstanding communication and interpersonal skills. In this role, I supervised a group of five people and I was responsible for mentoring and disciplining of the lab staff, training the lab technicians and assistants on the correct use of lab equipment and Verification of the test results and report them to the related authorities.
As my resume shows, I have profound knowledge and work experience in molecular biology and pharmaceutical biotechnology, I am skillful in QC of pharmaceutical compounds and operation, development and validation of several analytical methods such as GC-MS, HPLC, FT-IR spectrometry, NMR, UV-VIS, ELISA, (Q)RT-PCR, western blot and more other. Besides, I am well educated in ICH guidelines, cGMP and GLP, and I am familiar with compendia methods such as US, European/British pharmacopeias and national formulary (NF).
I am fluent in writing and speaking in English and I can communicate in French and I have a basic knowledge of Dutch. I am a good team player who enjoys working as a team member as well as independently.
