After a thesis on bacterial swarming (Bacillus subtilis) with Simone Seror at Orsay University, Daria joined our lab in January 2006 to develop a new project to identify proteins present in the membrane and matrix fraction of the trypanosome flagellum. This fraction is critical as it contains all the proteins necessary for flagellum formation and maintenance, but also candidate sensing proteins. Daria managed to purify intact flagella and analyzed their content in collaboration with the Proteomics Platform of the Institute. She also analyzed the function of the identified proteins. Daria is of Polish nationality and was initially funded by a grant from ANR on rare genetic diseases before obtaining a Roux fellowship for two years and support from the ANR grant SENSOTRYPA. She left the lab late 2010 to work as Executive Programme Manager of the E-Rare project at the GIS Institut Des Maladies Rares in Paris.
