I started my research career in Pr. Laurence Zitvogel’s laboratory (Paris, France) where I worked on tumor immunology. After completing my PhD work, I joined Pr. Vijay Kuchroo’s laboratory from 2008 to 2010 to gain further experience in understanding the molecular mechanisms leading to the differentiation of effector and regulatory T cells in autoimmune diseases and tumors. I returned to France in 2011 to set up a research team and I am now working as Research Associate Professor in Immunology at INSERM. My team aims to get greater insight into the molecular mechanisms that can endow CD4 T cells with anticancer properties to contemplate their use in anticancer adoptive T cell therapy. I am pleased to join the Kuchroo laboratory again as a Visiting Fellow to expand my knowledge on gene expression analyses and reinforce collaborations between France and the US.
