Current Experience

  • postdoctoral researcher

    Ghent, Belgium
    Since June 2010

    as a Postdoctoral Researcher, i acquired competence in DNA/RNA/Protein based technologies (e.g PCR, genome Sequencing, rt-PCR, Western Blotting, ...), Immunology (ELISA, Immunohistochemistry staining, ...), Cell Culture techniques (phenotypic Assays, Transfection Assays, cell binding Assays), In Vivo models, Infectious diseases, Cancer Biology and Bioinformatics. my Research includes how bacterial pathogens interact with the human stomach and cause disease, including gastric Cancer and neurodegenerative disorders. more specifically, i'm investigating which human Proteins are involved in disease development. i also designed and managed several Research projects, attracted financial support for them and have prior experience in leading andd Training Lab technicians and phd students throughout these projects.
