Prof. Dr. Dorien Van Saen studied Biomedical Sciences at the VUB and graduated in 2007. She started a PhD in the research lab Biology of the Testis focusing on fertility preservation options for young boys facing germ cell loss. This PhD thesis was successfully defended in 2012. Thereafter, she received a post doctoral grant at the Fund for Scientific Research Flanders (FWO-Vlaanderen) and continued working in the BITE lab. Her research focus shifted to patients with Klinefelter Syndrome and their options to preserve fertility. During her academic career, she supervised many master students during their internship. In 2018, she obtained a faculty position (10%) and is now trying to expand her research as a principal investigator.
