Carine was born in The Netherlands where she studied Biomedical Sciences in the beautiful city of Utrecht. After finding her passion for research during an internship on genome stability in the lab of Marcel Tijsterman, Carine decided that she wanted to see more of science/the world. This led to a summer internship at Sloan-Kettering in NYC where she worked on miRNAs in the lab of Jidong Liu. Not ready to leave the US, she went on to do her Master’s thesis research at Harvard University in the lab of Alex Schier. This is where she met Nadine. Fascinated by the question how transcription is activated during development, she decided to follow Nadine to Dresden. Here she is using single molecule RNA imaging to better understand zygotic genome activation.
