Recent Research Summary (04/2014-06/2018):
I am molecular biologist and specialized in functional genomics, experimental medicine and in vitro pharmacology. My 4.5-year research in diabetes (BMI, UCPH) field has been focused on the following areas and ended up to several publications:
- RNA metabolism in inflammatory and metabolic stresses
- Inflammasome complex contributions to dysfunction and death of pancreatic beta cells
- Pharmacological intervention of gap-junction modifying targets in pancreatic beta cells
- The role of chaperons in insulin folding
Moreover, I have developed my research into multidisciplinary areas of diabetes through collaboration with different labs that has led to the several publications.
Past Research Summary (2007-2012):
Due to my post master experience in viral immunology and genetics with focusing on arboviruses and hemorrhagic fever viruses in Pasteur Institute (National Reference Lab and WHO collaborating center), I aimed in my PhD project (first PhD) to make a transgenic plant expressing CCHF Virus glycoprotein and develop an edible vaccine against the virus, thus I got expertise in humanizing transgenic plants for expression of viral glycoproteins and further study on viral immune responses.
