En résumé

I started my academic studies in biology in the faculty of sciences of Sfax (Tunisia) where I had a bachelor’s degree in cellular and molecular biology, and a master’s degree in genomics and proteomics. My first steps in research started during my graduation project by analyzing the epigenetic regulation of two genes of Epstein-Barr virus. I also had an engineering diploma in biotechnology from the national engineering school of Sfax. At this time, I wanted to enrich my academic formation with working in a foreign research team, so I realized my engineering final project in Dr. Frederic Carriere team (Marseille, France) where I optimized the heterologous expression and purification conditions of human lipase in the yeast Pichia pastoris using different types of chromatography experiments. Those first research experiences raised my passion towards scientific research, which get me to be awarded a PhD scholarship from the French Ministry of Research and Technology. This scholarship gave me the chance to work on molecular aspects of cerebellum development in Pr. Thomas Lamonerie team (Nice, France). After my Ph.D, I joined Dr. Aleem team (Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar) as a postdoctoral associate in neuroscience where I studied the effect of different mutations identified in patients affected with muscular dystrophy using genetic analysis.

I’m looking now for a new position in the life science field. I’m open to opportunities either as a bench scientist or as a field application scientist or project manager with a biotechnology/pharmaceutical company.
