Lauren Versluys

"In June 2021 I graduated from Ghent University with a master degree in Biomedical Sciences - Major neurosciences. 
I completed my thesis on characterizing a newly found TARDBP mutation at Lab Dermaut. 
Since September 2021, I'm a part of the research group of professor Dermaut as a PhD student. 
The following years I will do research on RNF216-induced neurodegeneration."
