Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

My current work at FIMM is focused on understanding the mechanisms of pathogenesis and drug resistance in hematological malignancies, more specifically in multiple myeloma (MM) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML). This research requires the combination of high throughput drug sensitivity and resistance testing, NGS, and quantitative proteomics. Aims of the work are to identify new treatment strategies for patients with recurrent disease, identify new biomarkers for treatment response, and to develop new methods for patient stratification.
