Christine Genge, PhD
Team Lead, Scientific Recruitment

Christine Genge first joined STEMCELLTechnologies as a Scientific Inside Sales Representative after completing her PhD in molecular cardiac physiology in 2016. A pilates teacher in her spare time, Christine has a knack for connecting and engaging with people. She has now combined this talent with her scientific expertise as she heads up the Scientific Recruiting Team at STEMCELL.

Nicole Quinn, PhD
Associate Director, Scientific Communications

Nicole Quinn completed an MSc in cancer biology, then spent a year working as a laboratory technician in a high-throughput DNA sequencing lab before returning to graduate school. After finishing her PhD in genomics, and having discovered that her love for science lay more in communicating than doing research, Nicole left the bench to pursue a career in science communication. She took on the task of expanding the existing e-newsletter service at STEMCELL Technologies into a comprehensive, globally-accessible science communication program including more than 20 weekly field-specific newsletters, a podcast, several community-focused websites, and almost 40 different social media channels. Nicole is passionate about increasing accessibility to science and exploring new platforms to foster connection, collaboration, and knowledge-sharing within the scientific community.
