What I do at MMV:
I am responsible for managing projects funded through The European & Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP), as well as ensuring accuracy of scientific content required for grant reporting of these projects. To do this, I interact regularly with the R&D, Access and Corporate Affairs teams.
Why I work at MMV:
Malaria is still affecting millions of people worldwide and I am proud to be involved in the development of next generation medicines that will contribute, along with other interventions, to the elimination of the disease in endemic countries.
MMV is a leading product development partnership (PDP) in antimalarial drug research. I think the PDP model has great potential, as it utilises the expertise and knowledge of both private and public sectors to find the most efficient and effective solutions. I really enjoy working in such a dynamic and multicultural environment.
