Blandine Chazarin is a postdoctoral scientist in Dr. Jennifer Van Eyk’s laboratory at Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles, California. After four years in Paul Sabatier University in Toulouse studying Biology, Blandine explored proteomics for a year before beginning a Ph.D., in which she used mass spectrometry to better understand hibernating brown bear physiology, with the goal to discover new therapeutic approaches for muscle atrophy. In October 2019, she obtained her Ph.D. in LSMBO lab in Strasbourg, France. Blandine has also been President of the Youth Club of the Proteomic French Society for three years and was the organizer of yearly meetings dedicated to young scientists in proteomics. She is now involved in the Postdoctoral Scientist Society at Cedars-Sinai and continues to use mass spectrometry to answer biological questions.
