Valerie Van Ruyskensvelde graduated as a Master in Biochemistry and Biotechnology at Ghent University in 2013. During her master thesis at the Plant Systems Biology department (VIB, Ghent), she was involved in the functional analysis of RNA-binding proteins (RBPs) in the abiotic stress response in Arabidopsis thaliana under the guidance of dr. Katrien Van Der Kelen and prof. dr. Frank Van Breusegem. In 2014, she was involved in an industrial project that aimed to unravel the mode-of-action of a growth promoting compound. From 2015, she obtained an IWT grant that aims to identify new regulators of the RNA homeostasis during the abiotic stress response in plants and to functionally assess the role of prioritized RBPs in Arabidopsis thaliana.
