Françoise Van den Bergh, Ph.D

Fran Van den Bergh oversees all experiments performed in our wet lab. This often requires troubleshooting protocols and keeping current on new techniques that can be used in our lab. 

Published papers: (only with this group: see below) I have a total of 25 papers, 3 chapters and reviews.
