After a bachelor in cellular and molecular biology, I obtained a Master in oncology from the University of Montpellier. As part of this training, I had the opportunity to perform 3 independent internships of 6 months at the IRCM of Montpellier, the NKI in Amsterdam and the Karolinska institute in Stockholm.
This latest internship in Sweden confirmed my growing interest in the role played by the microenvironment in tumor proliferation and treatment resistance. I therefore joined the Akkari group where I work on elucidating the roles of immune cells in recurrent brain tumors emerging post- cytotoxic therapy.
