Summary

I have a PhD in Biomedical Sciences with strong expertise in Cancer Immunology/ Tumor microenvironment/ HPV. I want to redirect my career to the (pre)clinical research domain. To do so, I recently followed different trainings (Biowin) about: - regulatory affairs, - data management, - medical writing, - CRA and - GCP. I am fluent in English and proficient in writing projects, reports and scientific articles in French and English. I am able to analyze and present scientific results. I have very good presentation skills that I acquired during several national and international seminars. Thanks to the PhD thesis, I have gained experience in project and time management but also in teamwork. I personally believe that my experience and education make me a strong candidate for the clinical research domain. I’m available immediately and eager to learn and prepared to adapt myself to a new working situation. Don't hesitate to contact me for a job opportunity.
