Maitrayee Chatterjee is a biomedical research scientist with 10 years of working experience in multi-disciplinary subjects. Before starting my PhD, I worked on clinical research. I studied the prevalence of subclinical atherosclerosis in early Rheumatoid Arthritis patients and the effect of Disease Modifying Anti-Rheumatic Drugs. I finished my PhD in 2018 on Molecular Microbiology from Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, India. My research was focused on the identification of alternative therapeutic molecules from probiotics lactic acid bacteria to combat drug-resistant bacteria. I have also worked on the colon-specific drug delivery system. After that, I pursued a one-year postdoctoral study at University College Dublin, Ireland where I studied glycomics profile analysis of the wild type and genetically modified mice in the context of Inflammatory Bowel Disease. I have 8 publications in peer-reviewed international journals. Currently, I am  Postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Infectious Diseases and Immunology at Utrecht University, The Netherlands. I joined the Controlled Release Society to gain more knowledge in this field and to network with other research professionals. The purpose of joining the Early Career Scientist Committee of the CRS BeNelux & France Local Chapter as a Workshop-Webinars Coordinator is to build-up my leadership and organizational skills.
