+ Business and client orientated, I like working in a scientific environment, which includes learning and development opportunities. Currently, this environment enables me to apply my scientific and management competences in the drug-market -access matter. + Over the years I have acquired an expertise in general pharmacology related to diabetes and metabolic diseases, oncology and hematology, with a special focus in bacterial infectious diseases: Set up for a team of a new research pathway within the field of anti-infective pharmacology. This provided answers with innovative in-vitro cellular models upcoming questions related to potential effects of transporters on antibiotics: (i) Cellular pharmacokinetics parameters. (ii) Pharmacodynamic profile towards intracellular infection. (iii) Toxicodynamic potential on bacteria-infected cells. + Self-motivated team player, focused and quick learner with a good oral and written communication ability. + Solid experience in (bio)analytical development and validation methods for both small molecules and proteins. + Demonstrated technical and problem-solving skills with a significant of scientific accomplishments: 7 published papers on peer-reviewed journals and 12 communications. Prix de la Fondation Belge de la Vocation (F.B.V), fellowship ISAP (International Society of Applied Pharmacology) to attend Toronto ICCAC . Specialties: Transporters (influx/efflux) and drug drug interactions (DDIs). Characterisation of preclinical ADMET drugs properties. Antibiotics, intracellular infections, Expertise in culturing cellular processes Pharmacokinetic, pharmacodynamic,toxicodynamic Drugs transporters mediated resistance mechanisms
