Scientific research intern The Hague, Netherlands
January 2014 --- July 2014
Project title: Possible application of pharmacogenetics in deaths involving amphetamine-based drugs.
Subject: Pharmacogenetics. Using the genotyping of relevant CYP enzyme genes to gain genotype information that can be used in the interpretation of a potentially toxic drug concentration. A genetic predisposition, interfering with the normal activity of a CYP enzyme is a possible cause for the toxic drug concentration and might be the reason for the death.
Main objectives: Identification of deaths in which a pharmacogenetic analysis might have been useful for the interpretation of an elevated drug concentration. The secondary objective was to give recommendations for further research and practical use

Project title: "Elucidation of the working mechanism of isolates that interfere with quorum sensing"
Subject: Quorum sensing inhibition might be a possible non-antibiotic way to treat bacterial infections and prevent bacterial resistance. Certain bacteria use a form of communication, dubbed quorum sensing, to synchronize their individual behaviour when a large population density is present. This change in behaviour allows, for intance, the production of virulence factors and the creation of biofilms.
Main objectives: Investigating the quorum sensing inhibition that bacteria use to interfere with the communication of other bacteria.
