I am a PhD candidate in Biology at the University of Geneva since 2017. In 2020 I took part of the “PhD Booster”, an initiative of the Faculty of Medicine which promotes fundamental biomedical research. Even though it is constantly paving the path of all new therapeutic strategies, fundamental research is often unknown to the public. As a finalist, I was able to spread a little bit of my work and received a grant from the Hubert Tuor Foundation.
Passionate about Human Biology since I was a kid, I naturally chose to pursuit a research career after my Master degree. Thanks to the support of the foundation, I will be able to present my work in an international congress, where hundreds of renown scientists will be present. This will give me the opportunity to meet and discuss with experts in my field.
Currently, I would like to work closer to the therapeutic/clinical field and thanks to the support of the foundation, I was also able to start an accreditation that will allow me to support medical teams in clinical research. I also recently received the Faculty of Medicine award for the best 2021 thesis.
I am happy to join the 242 community. I had the opportunity during my studies to guide, help and support students, both in teaching or through the student’s association. I look forward to get involved and committing myself to the foundation, in order to exchange and share experiences with other members.
