I have an extensive experience in the translation of (protein) biomarkers from concept to clinical value, including but not limited to target identification, qualification & validation, assay development on different technology platforms, problem solving, production process optimization, early market integration, and clinical evaluation as part of the registration process.
Recently, I founded BIOMARKABLE bvba (a company that aims to create more value from biomarker programs or project concepts) and co-founded ADx Neurosciences (focused on the development of novel [bio]markers for use in dementia diagnosis or as companion diagnostics).
- I obtained my PhD degree at the University Hospital in Gent-Belgium as an endocrinologist (Study on the clinical relevance of steroid metabolism in the brain).
- I have been Involved in world-wide efforts to standardize immunoassays for CSF and plasma biomarkers (e.g., ADNI, AIBL, JPND).
- I am a member of several scientific advisory boards and biomarker working groups (e.g., CAMD).
- I was a coordinator (or participant) in European and National projects (IWT).
I’m looking forward to initiate a successful collaboration and bring higher value to your ideas.
