Coline Weinzaepflen, M.sc. (Live illustration)
@University of Basel (CH)
Coline Weinzaepflen holds a bachelor's degree in Biology from the University of Strasbourg (FRA), in which she spent a year studying abroad at the University of Montreal (CA). She graduated in summer 2021 with her Master of Sciences in Neurobiology from the University of Strasbourg (FRA). Manuel Spitschan was her supervisor during her 6 months internship at the University Psychiatric Clinics Basel in Basel (CH). Besides her studies, she kept drawing and started freelancing in press illustration and comic cartoons. The comic book came along at just the right time since she wanted to lean herself toward Science Communication and Journalism. She is now taking a gap year in her studies to develop this activity further.
