Steven Boeynaems, PhD
Hi, my name is Steven.
I am a postdoctoral researcher at Stanford University. My work focuses on understanding the molecular underpinnings of neurodegenerative diseases and stress tolerance.
Besides this, I have a general interest in evolution, RNA and protein metabolism, and tandem repeats. Aside from doing research in the lab, I am an avid science communicator and freelance writer, aiming to spread my passion for science. I am also an aspiring science artist, and amateur photographer and painter.
