I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Biology in 2014 at the University of Paris Descartes. During this time, I worked for two years as a technician at Institut Pasteur in the group of Remy Fronzes (Structural Biology of Bacterial Secretion), where I participated to the characterization of the pilus in Streptoccocus pneumonia, using several techniques including electron microscopy and western-blotting. I also acquired a solid experience in Biochemistry. Since January 2015 I joined the Proteomics platform as a technician. My function is sample preparation for mass spectrometry analysis. Together with the engineers of the platform, I am involved in the development of new strategies for the identification and characterization of post-translational modifications.
Post translational modifications (PTM)
Post translational modifications (PTMs) are known to play pivotal roles in cellular physiology and disease, but only a few of the over 300 currently known modifications are extensively investigated in proteomic studies. The most […]
Affinity Purification Mass Spectrometry (AP-MS) is the method of choice to study protein-protein interactions (PPI) and complexes under near physiological conditions. A protein of interest – the bait – is purified by either a […]
Within cells, proteins are the real effectors of all activities. The expression of certain proteins changes upon cell stimulation or stress (with virus, inhibitors or bacteria), or when cells differentiate or turn into a […]
