1. What is the best advice ever received?

From my Spanish literature teacher, as I was finishing my high school studies: “Make sure that you always have a purpose in life.”

2. What gets you out of bed every morning?

Pharmacogenetics will revolutionize healthcare: it can give patients personalized medication, boost well-being, restore health, and improve lives. When I wake up every morning my aim is to put that knowledge in doctors’ hands.

3. What are your next milestones?

To establish with PGXperts, the personalised medication as the basis for safe drug therapy in Germany: “the right drug with the right dose for the right patient at the right moment.”

4. What is your best analog moment?

Our daily SCRUM meetings. They reassure me that diversity is our key to success. I experience how the members of my team grow, as individuals and as a team, striving every day to turn our purpose of personalised medication into reality.
