An Hendrix's Biography

An Hendrix, Professor, Ghent University

An Hendrix is assistant professor at Ghent University and group leader at the Cancer Research Institute Ghent (CRIG). Her team studies small Rab GTPase-mediated release of extracellular vesicles (EV) by tumors, and the isolation and characterization of these nanometer-sized vesicles from liquid biopsies (published in highly ranked journals such as Nature Methods, Gut, JNCI, Cancer Research and Journal of Extracellular Vesicles). As such her team aims to get a deeper insight into the relevant aspects of EV and their biogenesis, and to exploit them for precision oncology. To allow and boost the clinical implementation of EV in daily clinical practice An Hendrix significantly invested in standardization and reproducibility of EV research since this is the foremost important step to initiate biomarker discovery in any type of biofluid for any type of disease. An Hendrix was awarded with a CRIG young investigator proof of concept grant (2017) and the prize of Medical Research 2010-2013 by the Belgian Royal Academies of Medicine (2013). She yearly organizes the EMBO/EMBL practical course on extracellular vesicles (Heidelberg, Germany: An Hendrix contributed to The Massive Online Open Course “Basics of Extracellular Vesicles”. She is founder of the EV-TRACK consortium that aims to increase transparent reporting and reproducibility in EV research ( and of the Belgian Society for Extracellular Vesicles that connects Belgian scientists working on EV (

Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are membrane-enclosed communicative particles released in body fluids that carry cell-type-specific biomolecular patterns. Knowledge on their origin, fate and function in the human body is required to accelerate clinical applications but hampered by a plethora of technological pitfalls (PMID:33568799). We created the EV-TRACK knowledgebase to stimulate transparency and steer reproducibility (PMID:28245209). We designed reference EVs, that are trackable and distinguishable from sample EVs, to support instrument calibration and data normalization (PMID:31337761; 33452501). We established reproducible protocols to separate EVs from other particles (PMID:31776460). This supporting ecosystem has steered us towards the pioneering discovery of systemic bacterial EVs in non-septicemic patients, including cancer patients (PMID:30518529; 35033427).
