About Alba Fernandez-Andreu

I am from Andalucía, southern region of Spain. I have lived in Utrecht for more than 7 years. I studied Psychology in the University of Granada, and for the last year of the Bachelors I moved to the Netherlands with an Erasmus scholarship. After graduating, I entered the Neuroscience and Cognition program, and specialized in Experimental and Clinical Neuroscience. My internships took place in the UMC Utrecht, in the groups of Prof. Elly Hol at the Department of Translational Neuroscience, Dr. Cora Nijboer at the Laboratory of Neuroimmunology and Developmental Origins of Disease, and Dr. Janneke Zinkstok at the Department of Psychiatry and Brain Center.

I graduated from the masters right at the start of the covid pandemic, so I worked at the GGD as covid tester while I applied for other jobs. I got a great opportunity at PPD, a CRO now acquired by Thermo Fisher Scientific as part of their clinical research group. I started by working in project assistant roles (namely Site Activation and Clinical Trial Coordinator) and I have recently been promoted to Clinical Research Associate (CRA). I am responsible for setting up, coordinating and supervising clinical studies in diverse therapeutic areas.
