Summary

I have experience in both pharmaceutical (clinical research) and academic research. I’m an passionate researcher, a quick study and I love new, challenging projects. I have no problems with planning, organizing and setting up studies and I’m fluently in English and Dutch.Furthermore, I am always keen to learn new skills and I like to work in a group.

Experience:
- study design, determine protocol, submit project to hospital committee and data privacy committee, approach subjects (young people and elderly), establish compliance of the protocol, perform measurements, analyse data, perform statistics, interpret data and Report)
- Guided bachelor and master's students (set up research proposal, carry out measurements and assist in writing the thesis)
-Blood sample testing in accordance to GLP (good laboratory practices), data entry in Laboratory Information System (LIS), maintenance of lab equipment and administrative support
- Supervision of clinical research projects (HCV + HIV) + Quality control checks
- Primary contact person for Third-party pharma companies for queries, complaints and reporting of results
