Suzanne Vink-Hermeling is the director and sole employee of Svinx Consultancy. Suzanne was born in 1976 in Heerlen, The Netherlands and studied Pharmacy in Utrecht. After her graduation she started her PhD project at the department of Pharmaceutics at Utrecht University. Here she looked at the unwanted immunogenicity of therapeutic proteins. What triggers this and how can it be prevented? Her PhD thesis can be found here. If you would like a hardcopy of it, that can be arranged via the contact page. She defended her thesis in November 2005 and started working at OctoPlus Development as a project leader and scientist formulation development. During this she was dealing a lot with GMP and it was then that she decided to become a Qualified Person. At first at OctoPlus and afterwards at HAL Allergy and Prosensa. She has gained a lot of knowledge on the production of clinical trial material, especially aseptically produced and advanced drug delivery technologies (i.e. liposomes, microspheres etc.).
During her free time she loves to spend time with her family and do a bit of crochet, which can be followed on Haakblog.WordPress.com.
