University of Copenhagen
Scientist with in depth knowledge and hands on experience in stem cell biology and neurodenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's disease and Frontotemporal dementia. Always interested in potential collaborations and new career opportunities. Currently working at Copenhagen University as Associate Professor and Scientific Project Manager for Stemmad, Neurostem and Brainstem. Hands on experience with organizing research amongst different groups all over Europe in order to fulfill milestones and deliverables of several EU and local grants; including periodic and final reporting. My scientific work includes basic research using neurons derived from human induced pluripotent stem cells to develop in vitro disease models and identify novel disease mechanisms as well as overlapping pharmaceutical targets amongst neurodegenerative diseases. As a scientific project manager I am striving to streamline research and collaboration amongst our involved partners, write scientific progress reports and ensure completion of milestones and deliverables.
