Pharmacist, Analytical Scientist, PhD Candidate Ghent, Belgium
October 2012 --- September 2016
Currently I am pursuing my doctoral thesis at the Drug Quality and Registration (DruQuaR) laboratory of the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Ghent University, Belgium. DruQuaR, a medicines quality control laboratory, is one out of only two Belgium university labs with a current accredited GMP license. At DruQuaR, fundamental and applied research is carried out in the fields of pharmaceutical analytics and regulatory affairs, with our general research goal being the study of the functional quality of pharmaceuticals and related products. Besides my own research, I am head responsible for the implementation of the quality system and quality assurance of our lab. Moreover, as a university member, I also contribute to the education of pharmaceutical sciences students by giving practical sessions and supervising thesis students. DruQuaR, under the lead of mentor/promotor Prof. Bart De Spiegeleer, creates a unique learning environment for PhD students, as we are not only focussing on our own research but we are also in close contact with the pharmaceutical industry and government, since we are performing contract services such as quality control analyses for the Belgium Federal Agency for Medicines and Health Products, as well as consulting services regarding analytical method development and validation.
Interim Pharmacist Aalst, Kruishoutem, Oudenaarde, Eeklo
July 2012 --- August 2012
During the summer of 2012 (directly after obtaining my masters degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences and before starting my PhD) I worked in four different pharmacies (located in: Aalst, Kruishoutem, Oudenaarde and Eeklo) all owned by ‘De Lindeboom Apotheken’. I was either working together with other pharmacists or I was the sole responsible pharmacist, working alone or together with pharmaceutical technical assistants. Giving pharmaceutical care and managing prescriptions and orders. Since I switched a lot between different pharmacies (I was interim/replacing pharmacist) during a very short time span, fast adaption to a new environment was a quality highly appreciated by my superiors and by the patients as well.
