Biography

I did my Masters degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology, from the University of Pierre and Marie Curie (Paris, France) in 2008. Then I received a PhD in 2012 in Molecular and Cellular Biology in the same university, where I studied the influence of N-cadherin adhesion molecule on the dynamics and recruitment of the microtubule cytoskeleton under the supervision of Dr René-Marc Mège.

Research

In Dr. Anton's lab, I am currently working on several research projects focused on the understanding of the cellular and molecular basis of radial glia polarity establishment and maintenance during the development of the cerebral cortex.
