Nadia Halidi


Postdoctoral Researcher

  • Botnar Bioimaging facility manager

Nadia joined Gillian Farnie and Udo Oppermann labs in March 2017. She is focusing on the influence of bone marrow adipocytes on breast cancer metastasis using 2D and 3D microenvironments and developing image-based assays to validate in-cell efficacy of new probes and inhibitors, provided by the Structural Genomics Consortium, to investigate biological effects, mechanism and disease target. 

Nadia received her MSc in Physics and Chemistry from the University of Pécs, Hungary and holds a Ph.D. in biophysics from the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland. Her graduate work focused on elucidating the mechanisms of intercellular calcium wave propagation and cell-cell communication between arterial smooth muscle cells. She then joined Gaudenz Danuser’s lab at Harvard Medical School as a postdoctoral fellow, where she investigated the effect of the mechanical environment on RhoGTPase signaling during cell migration. 

Beside her research, Nadia manages the Botnar Bioimaging facility. She assists with training new users, troubleshooting, maintaining and developing the equipment at the facility.
