Bianca Matthee holds a Master of Pharmaceutical Sciences from the University of Utrecht. For the past 15 years, Ms Matthee has held positions in a variety of pharmaceutical and biotech companies. One of her most recent assignments has been Vice President of Manufacturing Operations of ProQR Therapeutics, a Dutch biotech company focused on rare genetic disorders. At ProQR, Bianca has been instrumental in helping the company grow its staff from a few to now over 150 full-time employees.
Ms Matthee is a passionate self-starter, driven to development of treatments for patients suffering from life-threatening diseases. She notes that she feels privileged to have been born in the Netherlands and inspires to expand on inclusion and diversity in the workplace; both of which she has unfortunately seen a lack of throughout her professional career.
Being a member of the Executive Board with She Matters, she aims to utilise her professional skills and altruistic nature to make a difference for the many women that deserve a fair opportunity in their country of residence.
