Scientific Communication
Dr. Stefanie de Poot, Genmab – The Netherlands

Stefanie de Poot is a senior scientific writer at the biotech company Genmab, which is specialized in the creation and development of antibody therapeutics for the treatment of cancer. After completing her PhD in 2013 in tumor immunology at the Infection & Immunity Graduate School at Utrecht University and four years as a KWF post-doctoral fellow at Harvard Medical School (Boston, US) and the University Medical Center Utrecht, Stefanie made the switch from academia to industry to pursue her passion for scientific communication. As a scientific writer, she translates the preclinical science performed at Genmab into study reports, manuscripts, posters, presentations, regulatory documentation, and patent examples. She strongly believes that science never needs to be boring; it simply needs to be told in the most engaging way.
