Marie-Charlotte holds a PharmD and a Master degree in Toxicology. She started at NAMSA in 2011, where she was involved in the management of biocompatibility testing. She then moved into consultancy, working in both areas of biological evaluation and clinical evaluation of medical devices. She participated in the preparation of many Biological Risk Assessments and Clinical Evaluation Reports (CERs) of all classes of medical devices, including high-risk medical devices (i.e. implants, animal tissue containing devices or combination products). Marie-Charlotte is now involved in the biocompatibility assessment of medical devices, but has built strong expertise in the medical writing of clinical evaluation for these devices and the expected regulatory requirements in this field.
