MD – Phd

A physician by training, Veerle Persy obtained a Ph.D. in Medical Sciences from the University of Antwerp in 2003. Until 2008, she was a Postdoctoral Fellow of Research Foundation – Flanders (FWO) in the Pathophysiology Lab of Antwerp University, where she established and led a line of basic research focusing on the mechanisms of vascular calcification in the context of chronic kidney and bone disease.

Over 10 Years of academic research she became a published author, reviewer for several international journals, acquired expertise in obtaining government grants and gained in depth knowledge of laboratory techniques and the scientific research process.

Veerle founded Hugin Mugin Research in 2007. Since then, she completed over 70 projects, with project activities as diverse as LIMS selection and implementation, creating and validating databases, performing (systematic) literature reviews, collecting and cleaning research data, performing (statistical) data analysis and writing original articles, reviews, grants and SOPs. For these projects she immersed herself in a variety of domains, from nephrology and transplantation, over rheumatology, oncology and pathology to diabetes and in vitro fertilization.

Veerle has been a member of Flemish expert panels for the allocation of PhD fellowships for Strategic Basic Research since 2011, first for the Agency for Innovation by Science and Technology (IWT), since 2016 for FWO.
