Rafel Simó Vicens
PhD student at Acesion Pharma & København Universitet
Drug discovery and maintenance of the heartbeat through innovative in vitro research – more powerful and safer than before.

Innovation Fund Post Doctoral Researcher at AAK A/S, University of Southern Denmark and Københavns Universitet
Creating new knowledge through experimental lab science
“I like to tell people that the reason that I became a researcher was because as a child I really wanted to be a superhero. I think this is dream is edging closer to reality each day that I am in the lab and I don’t even work with radioactive spiders or gamma radiation (well not usually).”
