Graduated as Pharmacist (master in drug development). Finalizing my PhD in developing design strategies for advanced anti-cancer therapy. The multidisciplinary scope of my PhD (design, synthesis and in vitro/in vivo evaluation) allowed me to acquire various scientific skills and urged me to stay up-to-date with the latest research trends in anti-cancer therapy (e.g. chemotherapy, anti-cancer vaccination, immunotherapy). Due to my high interest in innovation and entrepreneurship, I'm looking for a job which puts me in direct contact with novel life science technologies, allows me to exploit my scientific background/skills and acquire entrepreneurial know-how/experience.
