3D Chromatin Conformation and RNA Genomics
Research center

I am a young French wet-lab researcher specializing in Epigenetics and ncRNA Biology. Since my early studies I have developed a strong foundation in genomics, as well as molecular and cellular biology I obtained my Msc in molecular and cellular biology in 2018 at the University of Poitiers. During my early years in University, I became increasingly fascinated by the field of long non-coding RNA biology. This led me to pursue a PhD at the University of Toulouse, which I completed in 2023 on the roles of very long intergenic non-coding RNAs in the 3D chromatin reorganization in senescence. This PhD research gave me the opportunity to discover the fascinating world of spatial genome and nuclear architecture. It became clear to me that I wanted to continue investigating the underlying biological functions and mechanisms of long non-coding RNAs in relation to 3D chromatin reorganization and nuclear architecture, particularly in the context of physiological and malignant cell fate determination. In line with this research direction, I recently joined Dr. Di Giammartino's team at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia in Genova in December 2023, whose interests fit perfectly with mine and where I will be focused on the role of lncRNAs epitranscriptomics in the 3D chromatin hubs network of glioblastoma cancer stem cells.
