Currently, I am working on developing CAR T cells to target multiple myeloma, and understanding how myeloma cells respond to such T cell therapies.
I undertook my Bachelor’s at the University of Toulouse III – Paul Sabatier (France), and at the University of Oslo (Norway) as part of the Erasmus program. I returned to Toulouse where I obtained a Master's in Biology and Health. During my master’s studies, I worked as an intern at the IPBS – CNRS (Toulouse) on the innate immune system response to mycobacterial ligands (2014), and at Lausanne University Hospital in 2016 studying immune disorders and gene therapy.
My research is focused on engineering T cells that target and modulate the tumor microenvironment in multiple myeloma.
I obtained my Bachelor’s in Biology from the University of Freiburg (Germany) where I worked on myeloid cell migration at the Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics. Thereafter, I graduated with a Master’s in Biomedicine from the Karolinska Institute (Sweden) with a research stay at the University of California, Irvine (USA) where I investigated immunosuppressive myeloid cells in breast cancer. I joined Pr Caroline Arber’s laboratory in November 2018 as a PhD student.
