Current Experience

  • Wetenschappelijk medewerker
    Since October 2007

    I am currently working at the Inflammation Research Center (IRC), a VIB-UGent departement, where I perform basic research in the field of inflammation. I have a Ph.D. in Sciences (biotechnology) and I'm an expert in biomedical molecular research in the field of inflammation and immunity. I'm responsible for the planning and follow-up of multiple research projects executed by Ph.D students. I manage and execute my own reseach projects in collaboration with technicians. I peer-review articles, write articles and grant proposals and give  presentations on the different topics.
