Carola performed her MSc in Biomedical Sciences at Radboud University. Hereafter, she started her PhD research at the Donders Institute and Radboud University Medical Centre. Her project focused on the influence of nutrition on brain development and degeneration in preclinical models. Carola successfully defended her thesis in 2015. In the same year, she started working as a Consultant Life Sciences at Hezelburcht. Since then, she has supported national and European grant proposals for projects with themes ranging from nutrition, neuroscience, molecular diagnostics, oncology, antimicrobials and clinical research. Currently, Carola is also involved in the project management of a Marie Skłodowska-Curie COFUND project on the development of novel antimicrobials.

I’m very satisfied when I’m able to support companies and researchers at univsities by coordinating and drafting their grant applications. This way I’m able to contribute to the realisation of innovative projects. In my spare time I find my piece of mind in nature. This also allows me to pursue photography. I enjoy reading a good book and cook together with friends.
