For the last 18 years I have built a number of start-ups, successfully creating and developing new business concepts in the biopharmaceutical industry. I am also involved in philantropic and educational ventures.

In 2014 I joined the world-class team at HIVACAT and co-founded AELIX Therapeutics, aimed to develop immunotherapies to cure HIV infection globally. AELIX raised 11.5 m € in 2016 from several international investors. Co-Founder and Scientific Advisor at Genocosmetics, where I conceptualized the idea of personalized cosmetics based on the genetic profile of the customer in 2011. (www.genocosmetics.com)
