I’m passionate about biology by nature, and understanding how the body works and defends itself when something goes wrong has always been something that has aroused my curiosity. During my studies at Grenoble Alpes University, I became very interested in cancer research. During a placement at the Institute of Biology and Pathology in Grenoble, I had the opportunity to study the role of the microenvironment in chemoprotection of myelodysplastic syndromes. This first experience in a research laboratory was very rewarding. Now, my thesis project is to study the role of macrophage cholesterol metabolism in the formation of the CD47/SIRP-α pathway-dependent phagocytic synapse in the tumour context.
