Currently, I hold the position of senior project leader in the technology department at Ablynx, a mid-sized Belgium based biotech company developing Nanobodies as therapeutics. As a member of the technology group I monitor the development of new technologies in our field and search for complementing innovations either from industry or from academic collaborators. At the moment the Ablynx the technology group holds a project portfolio consisting of feasibility studies, Nanobody platform improvements and technically challenging projects against intractable targets. As a project leader I head a number of such projects by providing the project strategy, connecting the different skill teams while safe guarding time lines and overall budgets.
