A European Registered Toxicologist (ERT), Götz has been involved in regulatory affairs for Plant Protection Products since 2002. He has been involved in study design and monitoring, dossier preparation and risk assessment for microorganisms, botanicals and semiochemicals as well as conventional active ingredients in the EU, and has managed numerous product registrations and active ingredient renewals. He also provided toxicological support to the EU REBECA project..
Jacqueline is a biologist with research experience in microbial ecology, molecular biology and applied microbiology. Since 2009 she acquired extensive experience in regulatory affairs with a main focus on microbial active substances and products, as well as on biostimulants, biofertilizers and adjuvants. In addition to her strong scientific and project management skills, Jacqueline is also responsible for taking care of some of our key clients. As part of the IBMA DE/AT working group biostimulants she is in direct contact with authorities during implementation of the new fertilizer regulation in Germany.
Agata is a biotechnologist, specialising in molecular biology and microbiology. Prior to joining APIS in 2018 she had 4 years’ experience in regulatory affairs as a biopesticide project manager, and 15 years of research experience in bioprotection and virology. She has participated in more than 10 biocontrol projects, including the EU BIOCOMES project, which sought to develop new biopesticides. She has been involved in numerous new microbial active ingredient submissions and national product registrations.
Adi has nearly 30 years of experience in the regulation of plant protection products, with a specific focus on environmental risk assessment. Following Study Director and Study Monitor positions she gained extensive experience during a long tenure at the Dutch regulatory authority (CTGB) where she evaluated regulatory submissions, prepared draft Assessment Reports (dARs) and draft Registration Reports (dRRs), with an increasing focus on biopesticides. She participated in Dutch, EU and OECD working groups and was involved in the preparation of numerous EU guidance documents both for conventional and biological active substances and products. Adi is also involved in regulatory affairs for biological biocides.
Nico has over 25 years’ experience in the fate and behaviour of chemicals in the environment, and specialises in environmental biotechnology, microbiology, and the bioremediation of water and soil. He has over 13 years of experience in the field of registration of plant protection products, chemicals, biocides, pharmaceuticals and veterinary medicines. He worked as a Study Director for fate and behaviour at a contract research organisation before becoming a risk assessor for fate and behaviour at the Dutch regulatory authority (CTGB), where his focus was on biopesticides and other “green” products. He was a member of the EU working group on biopesticides and the EU team that developed the guidance document for semiochemicals. He was also a member of the Dutch working group on greenhouse emissions.
Camila is a biochemist with research experience on the mode of action of toxins and biological control using biochemical and molecular approaches. She is a project manager and a regulatory expert who has specialised in the toxicological hazard and risk assessment of biopesticides and conventional plant protection products since 2012. Camila has participated in the coordination of projects for the renewal of active substances and product registrations since 2016.
Sophie is a European Registered Toxicologist (ERT) with an academic background in biology and experimental respiratory research. She has worked in the field of regulatory toxicology since 2016 and focused on study monitoring as well as hazard and risk assessment of biological and conventional active substances and plant protection products.
Sabine is an agronomist (MSc) specialising in crop protection, whose research was focused on applied biocontrol and molecular biology. Since 2011 she has worked in the field of regulatory affairs for active substances and plant protection products, mainly based on microorganisms. Joining APIS in 2019 as a regulatory expert and project manager she brings expertise in the preparation of scientific statements and regulatory dossiers, as well as project management.
Núria is a biologist with background in terrestrial ecology and agricultural sciences, further specialising in Integrated Crop Protection. Prior to her involvement in regulatory affairs in 2015 she focused on protein biochemistry and microbiology research for the biocontrol of insect pests. Núria is a project manager, and is our expert in efficacy and residues evaluation of biological and conventional products, and as such is also a specialist in Biological Assessment Dossiers and dietary risk evaluation.
Inka is an agricultural biologist with a PhD from the University of Hohenheim, and a research background in phytopathology, microbiology and molecular biology. Additionally, she gained practical experience from her professional training as an agricultural technical assistant to a plant breeding station. Inka has more than four years’ experience in regulatory affairs for microbial active substances and products, and biofertilizers.
Jasmin is our documentation manager, bringing 12 years’ experience in administrative project assistance, documentation work, CADDY preparation and coordination of dossier submissions.
Ines is a chemist and toxicologist, with a research background in the liver toxicity of pesticides and mode of action development through Adverse Outcome Pathway approaches. She has been involved in the toxicological classification and risk assessment of chemical active substances and plant protection products since 2018.
Jessica is a biochemist specialising in food science, with a PhD in molecular biology and microbiology applied to water surveillance. With a background in transdisciplinary research and sustainability her role within APIS is focused on the preparation of scientific and administrative documents for the approval of plant protection products and their active ingredients according to European or national regulations.
