Work interests

Mitochondria have the ability to respond to stress via adaptive changes, making them excellent organelles for assessing cell health. As the shape of mitochondria is a direct reflection of their functionality, the analysis of the architecture and dynamics of mitochondrial networks is particularly interesting for highlighting harmful effects (human, animal and environmental toxicology) or novel disease biomarkers (e.g., cancer, autism).
My mission on the MITOMATIQUE project consists of cultivating the different types of cells necessary for the execution of the project, and developing a miniaturized and automated system for taking images by confocal microscopy.
