MAIKE HANSEN, PHD
IMM Radboud University Nijmegen
With a background in biophysics and biochemistry, I have a long-standing interest in gene expression kinetics and circuit design in diverse systems, ranging from bacteria and viruses to mammalian cells. Before coming to the Netherlands, I worked in the bay area science "bubble" in sunny California, where I developed a passion for hiking and photography.

Óscar García Blay, MSc
I studied genetics and biomedical research in Barcelona. I am interested in a variety of topics related to how the genome works to regulate and control biological processes. As a PhD candidate in the Hansen Lab, I combine my interest in gene expression research with the perspective of systems biology. My goal is to identify mechanisms that regulate gene expression noise in a biological context. Outside the lab, I enjoy cooking, listening and sharing music and also travelling. I am always looking for nice activities to do such as escape room games.
Carmen Grandi, MSc
I studied biotechnologies and molecular biology at the University of Ferrara, in Italy. I am fascinated by the functional complexity of organisms and, through this journey as a PhD student in the Hansen Lab, I aim to study how stochastic events can impact molecular processes that regulate gene expression, leading to different phenotypes. Doing science also needs creativity: this is why I've always been interested in many forms of art. My biggest passion is singing and creating music. I also enjoy a lot drawing when I need to relax and think.
