Clara Steichen

Short Bio

Postdoctoral fellow since February 2015 working on pig induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC)-derived cardiac cells for cardiac regeneration in a pig model of myocardial infarction. Graduated from a french Biotechnology Enginner School (Ecole Supérieure de Biotechnologie de Strasbourg) and from a Master « Biotechnology and Therapeutic Innovations » from the Faculty of Pharmacy of Strasbourg in 2010. Obtained a PhD in 2014 in Université Paris Diderot focusing on induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) technology working on iPSC generation using mRNA transfections and heaptic differentiation, genome editing, iPSC genomic integrity using high-throughput analyses and on a preclinical model of autologous transplantation of simian iPSC-derived hepatocytes.
