In 2007, I obtained a PhD degree in Cellular Biology and Biotechnology from the University of Denis Diderot at Paris where I was interested in the molecular mechanisms of cell death and cell cycle regulation in cancer, specifically in Epstein-Barr-Virus associated B-Lymphoma. I also obtained an inter-university diploma in translational research and clinical investigation from Pierre et Marie Curie Paris 6 university.
I started my postdoctoral training in 2010 where I focused my research on the molecular mechanisms of anti-cancer drug resistance and tumor reversion (leukemia and breast cancer). In 2012, I accepted a permanent position at the Institut Pasteur Biobank facility where I was in charge of managing projects and deploying the ISO9001 Quality Management System (QMS) standards.
During 5 years, I have acquired many skills ranging from teaching and supervision of trainees to project management, QMS, auditing, ethics and biobanking. With regard to teaching activities, I gave lectures in Cell Signaling and molecular mechanisms of oncogenesis at Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan, Leonard De Vinci (Paris 13) and Paris Descartes (Paris 5) universities. I also taught courses pertaining to biological risk and project management at Versailles university.
In 2017, I joined the Next-Generation-Sequencing (NGS) core facility at Institut Pasteur. My activities are focused on the management of NGS project and the deployment of ISO9001 standards. Most of my work is cross-functional, including strategic management and capacity building in the frame of European and Pasteur Network consortium projects.
