Présentation

I am a pharmacist from Syria, I arrived to France on 2015 where I got my master's degree in biomedical engineering (specialty of cell therapy) from the university Paris 5. I started my internship in the lab of Dr.Ana maria Lennon Duménil (Ana maria Lennon Duménil) in 2016, then I joined the IC3I european PhD project where I got 3 years fellowship to do my PhD study. The aim of the project is to determine the mechanical response of immune cells (in particular dendritic cells) to confinement. I work at the interface of biology and mechanics.  In 2019, I got a fellowship from FRM (Fondation pour la recherche medical) to finish a 4th year PhD I got my diploma in 2020. I am currently a posdoctoral fellow in the same lab continuing my study on dendritic cells and exploring more aspects of my project.
