Why did you choose science as a career?

I was curious and impressed by the complexity of the human being, and wanted to learn more about the wonder of how a human being could be created from just one cell. I had an aunt who died from cancer and that made me focus on this area at the beginning of my career.

What is one piece of advice you’d give to young women in the life science sector?

Follow your passion and your dream, and don’t be to hard on yourself. A lot of woman struggle because they put the bar so high for themselves: nobody is perfect and perfection is boring. Believe in yourself!
