    En résumé

    Initially, I graduated from ENSTBB in 2005 as a Biotechnological Engineer (Master's degree). I work at the moment as a Researcher in a French biotechnological company named DBV Technologes. Recently, I had been working for Bio-Rad Laboratories as a Project Leader in the Immuno Hematology division. My main tasks led me to coordinate a team of two technicians and to supervise projects to produce monoclonal antibodies targeting red blood cell antigens used in the Luminex (Bioplex) technology for the development of diagnostic tests. This job allowed me to acquire a solid knowledge in Hematology and organization and communicative skills. Before this experience, I used to work as a Research Engineer in a company specialized in immunotherapy and was in charge of the Research Department. My responsibilities consisted in discovering and characterizing the effects of immunostimulating proteins (therapeutic antibodies and recombinant vaccines) targeting human activated T cells and dendritic cells in oncology, infectious disease and autoimmune disorder experimental models. In order to study the potency of these molecules, my work led me to practice a broad range of techniques used in the different fields applied to Biology such as molecular biology, cellular biology and biochemistry. Besides, in order to support my research investigations, I could acquire a proven proficiency in designing in vitro cell based assays by having the responsibility to develop and validate immunological experiments in order to analyse the functional properties of these molecules on the host immune response (cell binding assay, phenotypings, apoptosis assay, cytokine release by Multiplex, cell cytotoxicity and proliferation assays). Therefore, with these projects, I could gain a real flexibility, autonomy and solid skills in Immunology.
