 About me...

Dr Veronique Juvin, Graphic designer at SciArtWork.

My name is Veronique Juvin and I created SciArtWork at the beginning of 2016.

 

I used to be a research scientist, having done my PhD in Montpellier, France (Institute of Functional Genomics/IGF) followed by 8 years' postdoc in Cambridge, UK (Babraham Institute/BI).

During my PhD training, I studied  the pharmacological characteristics of the TRPV2 calcium channel and its functional roles in human immune cells. Then I joined the BI and worked on the Class1 PI3 kinase pathway and its role in breast cancer. Using isogenic human breast epithelial cell lines (MCF10a) I studied the influence of mutations frequently found in tumours (PTEN deletion, PIK3CA H1047R and E545K) on cell migration and transcriptome modulation.

Over the years, I have used numerous cutting-edge techniques of molecular biology (transcriptomic analysis using NGS technology, generation of MCF10a Knock-Out cell lines using CRISPR system), imaging (confocal microscopy and live cell imaging for calcium or PIP3/PIP2 visualisation), cell biology (chemokinesis and transwell migration assays, 3D acinar culture in matrigel and tumour formation in soft agar gel, siRNA transfection, lentivirus production and transduction), biochemistry (western-blot combined with InfraRed fluorescent detection, lipid extraction).

Toward the end of my postdoc, I took professional trainings in the use of digital illustration tools (I am now Adobe Certified Associate in Graphic Design & Illustration Using Adobe Illustrator; Adobe Certified Associate in Visual Communication Using Adobe Photoshop; trained in Adobe AfterEffect and Adobe Indesign).

 

You can find me on LinkedIn for more details on my CV.

To make a long story short.

I love science, for the innovation, the logic as much as the unexpected turn, and simply for the knowledge itself. And I love drawing for the creativity, the beauty and the clarity it can bring beyond words. From this was born SciArtWork!
