I have studied the ‚International master: from fundamental molecular biosciences to biotherapies ‚ at Sorbonne Universite – Pierre et Marie-Curie, gratuating in June 2021. During my master, I first investigated stem cells regeneration in an inflammatory context (Instituto de Medicina Molecular, Lisboa). Further on, I did my master thesis looking at the role of a hematopoietic marker in T-cells in Acute Lymphoid Leukemia (APHP Saint-Antoine Hospital Paris, Sorbonne Universite). As I have a great interest in sex and gender-sensitive biomedical research, I have decided to pursue a PhD focusing on women’s health and started at the INIMS in October 2022. I will be focusing on the investigation of T-cell function and their modulation by pregnancy and its implications for the pathogenesis of Multiple Sclerosis and its animal model (Experimental Autoimmune Encephalomyelitis: EAE). I would also like to learn to conduct biomedical research taking into account sex and gender in experiments set-up and data analysis. On the other hand, I want to develop a program to promote and empower women scientists in their careers, and help with intersectionality issues in research.
