During these studies, she realized the clinical applicability of microRNAs to treat genetic disorders and pursued actions to translate the basic knowledge into a preclinical development as a doctoral researcher in uniQure, a gene therapy company based in Amsterdam and USA. While at uniQure, she optimized the lead miRNA-based product for the treatment of incurable Huntington’s disease. She was involved in the preclinical drug development, executing proof-of-concept studies, supporting intellectual properties, and sustaining collaborations with different universities.
