As an undergraduate student, I had the opportunity to do an internship under the direction of Drs. Laurence Bresson Bepoldin and Simon Latour. I participated in research designed to understand the link between calcium signaling pathways and lymphoma migration and to determine the role of Orai1 and STIM1 (therapeutic targets) in the calcium response to SDF1. 

Throughout my scientific studies, I took a particular interest for neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheihmer’s disease, which led me to Thinakaran's lab where I found an opportunity to learn more and seek new challenges. Here, am studying the role of the protein BIN1 in Alzheimer's disease.
