Vasil, Project Manager
PhD in Bioengineering, Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium

Maria is an expert in cellular bioengineering and wrote his PhD thesis on high-density culture of insect and mammalian cells in serum-free media in batch, fed-batch and continuous culture modes. He is experienced in the culture of adherent cells on microcarriers as well as in fixed-bed bioreactors in perfusion.

Nadia, Cell Culture Technician
Bachelor’s degree in Medical Biology, IDC, Belgium
DES in Molecular Biology orientated Biotechnology, ULB, Belgium

Nadia has more than 15 years of experience. Through academic and industrial fields, she worked on cell culture, immunology, molecular biology and analytical/industrial chemistry. She developed and validated immunological methods of medical diagnostics. At Euroscreen, she worked in development and screening of new chemical and biological entities with G protein-coupled receptors (GPRC’s). Cell culture, pharmacological characterization, new cell lines validation (CHO, HEK, 1321n1) and HTS method were commonly used.
