Relevant career highlights

I have been involved in vaccine R&D for 15 years, starting with a PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences from the Universiteit Leiden (The Netherlands), where I completed research on influenza vaccine. Then, I joined the Vaccination Formulation Laboratory (Switzerland), where I managed various preclinical vaccine development projects for the private and public sectors, for human and veterinary vaccines. During this time, I also had the opportunity to initiate new collaborative technology transfer and research projects with collaborators in Indonesia and Thailand, on influenza and leptospirosis vaccines. In 2018 I initiated a commercial project that aimed to facilitate access of veterinary vaccines to animal health professionals in East Africa.
