    En résumé

    Dr. Natacha Turck began her scientific career (INSERM U.682, Strasbourg, France) by studying fundamental sciences in the oncology field. She acquired skills in biochemistry, proteomics, cellular/ molecular biology and obtained in 2004, a PhD degree in Life Sciences. She moved to Switzerland in 2005 in order to join the Faculty of Medicine in Geneva, as post-doctoral researcher. In this new context, she learnt translational research specifically applied to brain damage diseases. Her objectives were to discover and validate proteins as new biomarkers for helping decision on diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, etc…in the context of stroke. Now, she has a senior position in the Faculty of Medicine in Geneva and works as senior translational Researcher, always in the brain damage context but extended to other diseases such as SAH, traumatic brain injury (TBI), multiple sclerosis (MS/SEP), Sleeping sickness, Parkinson…. More recently, she has decided to develop a new research axis on lacrimal fluid as source of biomarkers (group leader of the OPTICS group). During all her career, she interacts daily with multi-disciplinary people (chemists, bio-IT specialists, statisticians, physicians,…) and manage up to 12 persons (from trainees to senior scientists). She has a substantial experience in cerebrovascular diseases, biomarkers (discovery, validation process, IVD) and clinical fields (clinical studies, intend-of-use ,statistics). Beside sciences, she has also institutional and teaching responsibilities in the Faculty of Medicine but also internationally. -Tears as source of biomarkers for ocular and systemic diseases. -Technical skills: biochemistry, proteomics, cellular / molecular biology. -biomarkers strategies : from discovery to clinics. Include statistics. -Clinical field: Stroke, SAH, traumatic brain injury (TBI), multiple sclerosis (MS/SEP), Sleeping sickness, Parkinson, Ocular diseases -Teaching, institutional and international responsabilities
