I grew up in Bordeaux, France. In 2015, I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Bordeaux in cellular biology and physiopathology. My interest for the inner ear began when I join the lab of Dr. Mireille Montcouquiol and Dr. Nathalie Sans in Bordeaux as a PhD student. During my PhD, I studied a very rare pathology, called the Chudley McCullough Syndrome, characterized by early onset sensorineural deafness and brain anomalies. During this project, I learned different technics including biochemistry, Immunocytochemistry, surgery and dissection that permit us to clarify the etiology and identify a new molecular basis of this pathology. During this exciting project, I realized how this work is essential to find a treatment for these patients in order to improve their lives. After receiving my PhD degree in June, 2019, I had the great opportunity to join the lab of Dr. Jeffrey Holt and Dr. Gwenaelle Geleoc in October 2019 to continue in hearing research. My goal is to discover and develop approaches to restore auditory function by gene therapy in models of human deafness.
