- Bowness Group | Immunology of Ankylosing Spondylitis Research Group
I gained a PhD in Biochemistry in 2010 from the University Paris 6, I joined the Mediterranean centre for Molecular Medicine as a postdoc fellow working on potentiation of insulin action by chemical compounds in order to treat type 2 diabetes. I then joined Dr. Pascale Bertrand's lab at the French Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) in 2013 to study the impact of oxidation stress and ionizing radiation on the nuclear architecture and genomic stability. Afterwards, I moved to the Centre of Immunology in Marseille to study the Impact of epigenetic factors on V(D)J rearrangement of T-cell receptor focusing on the role in T cell differentiation and leukemogenesis. Recently in 2017, I joined Professor. Paul Bowness and Dr. Fiona MCcann's group as postdoctoral research assistant in translational immunology, working on drug discovery and development which aims to identify and validate new targets in Spondyloarthritis patients.
