Melanie Sipion joined the WyssCenter in April 2022 as a Preclinical Research Associate. Her primary role is to monitor and report on the well-being of preclinical models, write detailed experimental reports according to approved standards and perform histology and imaging procedures.
Melanie studied at the Ecole Supérieure des Techniques de Biologie Appliquée (ESTBA) in Paris to obtain her Bachelor's degree. During her internships and various professional experiences, she had the opportunity to work in cardiology and in neuroscience on Huntington's disease. This allowed her to gain theoretical and technical knowledge in immunohistology, imaging, molecular biology, and cell culture.
