Sandrine Seyen studied Medical Biology with specialisation in Biotechnology at the Haute Ecole André Vésale in Liege (Belgium). She started her carrier at the University of Liege in 2000 at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, but worked, depending on the research project, at the Faculty of Medicine, Sciences, Psychology and even at the office of Scientific Communication, organising events for General public. From Molecular Biology to micro-surgery, immunohistochemistry to transgenic mouse breeding, her experience is broad.
Later, she worked as quality control technician at GlaxoSmithkline, a pharmaceutical company in Rixensart (Belgium).
Even though French is his mother tongue, she joined begin 2010 the Department of Cardiology in the group of Prof. Paul Volders where Molecular Biology became her main area of research.
At this moment, Sandrine is research technician in the Department of Cardiology, where she still focusses on cell Transfection, Cloning, Western blotting and hiPSC-derived cardiomyocytes. She is involved in the introduction of new techniques and she loves to share her knowledge. For these reasons, she is yearly involved in the training and evaluation of the thesis of students from Biomedical School in Liege.
Since 2018, Sandrine decides to deepen her knowledge in stem cell biology and genetics. She also closely collaborates with the team of Prof. Leon de Windt.
