Hosts Lisandra de Castro Bras (East Carolina University) and Jonathan Kirk (Loyola University Chicago) talk with Aurore Lyon (Maastricht University), the first author of “Differentiating the effects of beta-adrenergic stimulation and stretch on calcium and force dynamics using a novel electromechanical cardiomyocyte model,” published in August 2020. Aurore pursued a master’s degree, followed by a PhD, at Oxford University. She is now completing a post-doctoral fellowship in the Department of Biomedical Engineering within the Cardiovascular Research Institute Maastricht at Maastricht University. Aurore’s story is about finding a passion in an unexpected field while pursuing research in a completely different area. From engineering to cardiovascular research, Aurore brings a refreshing perspective to navigating career and life across countries and cultures. Ready to change directions in your own career?
