During my PhD I investigated the response of melanocytes to UV irradiation under the supervision of Dr Jean-François Doré (INSERM 453, Lyon, France). As a postdoctoral fellow in Dr Curtis Harris Laboratory (Laboratory of Human Carcinogenesis, NCI/NIH, Bethesda, USA), I participated in the identification and characterization of a new family of tumor suppressor genes, the ING (INhibitor of Growth) genes.
In 2005, I returned to France in the laboratory of Pr Christian Brambilla (INSERM U823, Grenoble) and set up a project aiming at understanding by which mechanisms ING proteins and especially ING2 could play a role in tumor suppression.
In 2009 I joined the INSERM U917 in Rennes (Pr Karin Tarte), in partnership with EFS-Bretagne and was recruited as an INSERM investigator in 2010.
In 2015 I joined the newly created OSS laboratory. My project aims at elucidating the role played by ING genes in lung carcinogenesis. Apart from my main project, I am interested in the mechanisms of cellular senescence as well as the cellular and tumor response to radiotherapy.
