With my expertise in cell biology and neurosciene I entered the biotech world to fulfil my curiosity about drug discovery. As Research Quality Manager I experienced how drug development for CNS diseases and diabetes is performed and I further developed multitasking and organizational skill to meet deadlines. I am strongly interested in the validation of novel drugs at a very high quality level. As a person, I am eager to lear, result-driven and independent as I enjoy intellectual challenges.
