I received my undergraduate degree at Paris VI university (Paris, France) in Bio-Industries. I worked forsix years in Dr. Klatzmann’s gene therapy lab at Hopital de La Pitie Salpetriere (Paris, France) focusing on immunology of graft versus host disease. In 2000 I moved to Montreal (Canada) and worked at the Lady Davis Institute (McGill University) in Dr. Galipeau’s Cell and gene therapy lab for another 6 years. During that time I implemented the first shared scientific platform of the Institute. In 2005 with 5 other colleagues, we created the Canadian Cytometry Association (CCA). After my first maternity leave, in 2008 I accepted a position at the « Centre de Recherche » du CHUM (Universite de Montreal) as a Cytometry facility manager. Additionally I took on the responsibility of President of the CCA for 4 years after which I resigned and started a position with Beckman Coulter as a Sales specialist for flow cytometry equipment covering Quebec and Eastern provinces. Since then I work as an independent consultant with MiaCellavie and other private companies.
