My time as a post-doctoral fellow has enabled me to acquire additional expertise in areas which will be critical to my future research endeavours.

Vanessa is the perfect example of a Marie Curie fellow. Working on health issues, she managed to obtain two Marie Curie grants; one to carry out her research abroad and one to establish herself later in her career.

Her excellence has taken her across continents, from France to the USA and back, with stops in Canada and Japan, the country where she was born. Today, she is thinking about involving international industry partners in her work.
