As a molecular biologist, I am now working as a freelance researcher in the Netherlands. Involved in teaching and fundamental wound care research. I currently provide the programme section "biology of wound care" for the wound consultant course at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam. The latest research project is an application for an omics project involving 7 hospitals and 5 research institutes. Career: commercial activities in wound care from 1996-2017 followed by a transition to research and consulting. Now supporting hospitals, policy-makers and companies with fundamental issues related to wound care. Apart from wound care: treasurer of the Dutch Insititute of Biology and President of the European Countries Biologogist Association.
