Meet Project Leader Sindhu Naik
We are pleased to welcome Sindhu Naik, who joins our team as project leader for SYNBEE. SynCellEU, together with Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands, is participating in this two-year Horizon Europe project, coordinated by eureKARE. Sindhu manages the first work package of the SYNBEE project, which includes the realization of a SWOT analysis of the synthetic biology field in Europe.
“Hi, I’m Sindhu Naik and I’m excited to join TU Delft and SynCellEU as a project leader.
Previously, I worked as a scientist at Galapagos, a pharmaceutical company, where I developed in vitro disease models to study various pathologies, including kidney diseases. Before that, I received my PhD in Biomedical Sciences from the University of Sheffield, UK. I also worked at Goldman Sachs as an associate for five years after my bachelor’s degree.
Originally from India, I have been living in the Netherlands for the past five years. In my free time, I enjoy travelling, reading non-fiction books, and spending time with my almost two-year-old son.
I look forward to learning and taking on new challenges in this role!”
