About Hetty Helsmoortel (BE)

Hetty Helsmoortel is a loving mother and molecular biologist at Ghent University who works on unraveling the puzzle that is childhood leukemia. Ever since high school, she has been passionate about two completely different worlds—science and theater. She is therefore on a lifelong journey of uniting both passions into one brain.

This has led her to win both the Wetenschapsbattle and FameLab Belgium competition, the biggest science communication competition in the world, and become the scientist in residence at ‘de afspraak’ on Canvas. She is using her powers for good by striving for a world in which all scientific data is open for everyone. Be prepared for a powerful story by an advocate of open science.
