Ruby Karsten received her BSc degree (2015) in Life Science and Technology and her MSc degree (2017) in Medical Pharmaceutical Sciences from the University of Groningen. Her first master project at the University of Groningen was dedicated to precision-cut liver slicing technique as a model to study drug-induced cholestasis. The second master project was about the incubation of cell spheroids in a liver bioreactor and was performed at ScitoVation, North Carolina, USA. In November, 2017 she began her graduate studies under the supervision of Prof. Sabeth Verpoorte and Prof. Peter Olinga. Her contribution to the TISuMR project will be the development of a microfluidic device for the incubation of precision-cut liver slices to study drug-induced cholestasis.
