Company: Ghent University
Job title: Professor
An Hendrix is assistant professor at Ghent University and group leader at the Cancer Research Institute Ghent (CRIG). Her team studies small Rab GTPase-mediated release of extracellular vesicles (EV) by tumors, and the isolation and characterization of these nanometer-sized vesicles from liquid biopsies. To allow and boost the clinical implementation of EV in daily practice An Hendrix significantly invested in standardization and reproducibility of EV research since this is the foremost important step to initiate biomarker discovery. She is founder of the EV-TRACK consortium that aims to increase transparent reporting and reproducibility in EV research. She yearly organizes the EMBO/EMBL hands-on course on EV and is founder of the Belgian Society for Extracellular Vesicles that connects Belgian scientists working on EV.
