I completed the master program of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Leuven in Belgium. My thesis focused on the discovery of a new human stem cell type that resembles an embryonic cell line, responsible for primitive hematopoiesis. During my education, I was also employed at Trace. Here, I performed in vivo cancer research using murine models with patient-derived tumor xenografts.
After graduating, I discovered dr. Akkari’s lab and found their work in immuno-oncology fascinating. In October 2022, I joined the Akkari group to help understanding the complex role of macrophages within the micro-environment of brain and liver tumors.
