Associate Professor of pediatric nephrology (MD-PHD), Sainte Justine Hospital, Montréal University, Canada
I completed my pediatric medicine and nephrology training at the University of Paris in 2018. I subsequently did a three-years pediatric nephrology fellowship at the Robert Debré Hospital in Paris. I then did a PHD in immunology at the faculty of the Bichat Hospital, in the Inflamex Laboratory of Excellence with Pr. Renato Monteiro. I have completed my PHD working in genetics with Pr. Laurent Mesnard at Sorbonne University Laboratory UMR_S 1155. My research focuses on childhood IgA nephropathy and my research interests encompass the clinical specificities of childhood IgA nephropathy as well as the interest of immune biomarkers for diagnosis and prognosis of disease and the impact of genetic variants.
