Kim Vanuytsel, Ph.D.

PhD: Biomedical Sciences, Molecular and Stem Cell Medicine (KU Leuven, Belgium)
Masters: Bioengineering (KU Leuven, Belgium)
Major: Cell and Gene Biotechnology
Hometown: Kasterlee, Belgium

Kim joined the lab in November 2014 after finishing her PhD at the Stem Cell Institute Leuven (SCIL), aimed at developing a human pluripotent disease model for Fanconi anemia. As a postdoc in the Murphy lab she continues her efforts to unravel hematopoietic disorders and primarily focuses on modeling β-Thalassemia using induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). Besides studying what can go wrong during red blood cell development, she is also exploring ways to scale up in vitro red blood cell production.

Outside the lab Kim enjoys running, soccer, good food (eating out as well as cooking), good music (or bad music in good company) and from time to time she gets creative with paint or pencils.
