Researchgate profile

With a chemical engineering background I started in 2010 a PhD in physical-chemistry on the syntheses and characterizations of nanoparticles for biomedical applications. While going deeper into my nanoparticles skills I learned new knowledge on toxicities and biological behaviors of nanohybrids made for medical purposes.

During my postdoctoral experiences from 2011 to 2016, in particular at EPFL, I continued working on synthesis and characterizations methods « GMP-like » for nanomaterials in order to answer pharmaceutical and medical requirements. I also focused my research on the study and the understanding of the role of nanoobjects physico-chemistry on the living world especially their interactions with protein from biological media: the « Protein Corona« 

This thematic is driving my actual research at ICB Laboratory (BH2N team).

More details

2007-2010: After a chemical engineering diploma from the University of Technology of Compiegne (UTC), I started a PhD in physical chemistry at the ICB Laboratory on the Elaboration of functionalized nanoparticles: applications as MRI contrast agent. My research was focused on the syntheses of magnetic nanparticles via soft chemistry or hydrothermal and continuous methods with an accurate control of the physicochemical properties and in depth characterizations. Nanoparticles’ surfaces were also modified and functionalized for a better biocompatibility, less toxicity and targeting behviors in order to be used as a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) contrast agent.

2011-2015: I worked for 4 years in Pr. H. Hofmann’s team at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) on a FP7 European project (Nanodiara) on the development of novel nanotechnology based diagnostic and therapeutic systems for arthritic diseases. My research was centered on one part on the reproducibility and scale-up of the syntheses and methods to face biomedical challenges. On another part, I studied the interactions between nanoparticles and proteins in order to better understand their biological behaviors. This scientific area is commonly called: the « Protein Corona« .

2015-2016: After these projects, I continued my research at Dublin City University (Pr. Dermot Brougham) on a FP7 European project (UNION). Then at Basel University (Pr. Cornelia Palivan) I worked on a Swiss project NCCR (National Centres of Competence in Research). These two projects were focused on the development of physicochemical solutions for biomedical applications such as  « nano-flowers » or « nano-vesicles ».

Since the end of 2016: I got a CNRS Researcher (CR) permanent position at BH2N team from the nanosciences department of the ICB laboratory to continue working on my thematic focused on  the development of nanomedical solutions and on the understanding of their biological behaviors.

Description du projet:

Project description:

This NCCR project was pooling multidisciplinary areas from the physics and chemistry to the biology, the biostatistics and the computer sciences.

The main objctive of the « Molecular Systems Engineering » project was to create complex molecular layouts to mimic cellular reactions. Such systems can be use as organic molecules (enzymes for example) industrial productions or to control cellular systemps for applications in health.

The Molecular Systems Egineering project was divided into 4 Work Packages (more details).

  • WP 1: Molecular modules
  • WP 2: Molecular systems
  • WP 3: Molecular factories
  • WP 4: Cellular systems

Role during the project:

As a scientist in the WP 2 of University of Basel, my role was to develop stimulo-sensitive membranes made from the assembly of polymeric vesicles (polymersomes) and inorganic nanoparticles functionalized with DNA. These membranes shoul induce cascade reactions between the vesicles and catalyzed by the chosen nanoparticles (more details).

From 2011 to 2014 at EPFL: FP7 European project (Nanodiara) on the development of nanotechnological tools for the detection and the therapy of arthrtic diseases.

More details

Project description:

Although treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) has improved in the last years, there is still no disease modifying treatment for osteoarthritis (OA). For treatments to be effective it is considered extremely important to detect and treat these diseases early and then be able to monitor treatment efficacy early on (within weeks or months) after its initiation rather than waiting up to a year for RA and 18 months for OA. RA is a chronic inflammatory joint disease that involves acute and chronic synovial (joint lining) inflammation causing the erosive destruction of articular cartilages, ligaments and subchondral bone. It develops in about 1% of the population. OA, currently the main cause of disability among the middle age and elderly populations, is a degenerative arthritis involving much less synovial inflammation in most patients, with a prevalence of about 12% of the population.

The main objective of the NanoDiaRA project is the development of nanotechnology-based diagnostic tools for easy and early detection of disease onset, progression and responses to therapy RA and OA via specific targeting of inflammatory areas and imaging with Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).  New blood and urine nanotechnology-based diagnostic biomarker assays was also developed to be a very sensitive, easy to use and affordable immunoassay benchtop analytical systems for widespread clinical use. In view of the development of this targeted nanoparticle-based technology there are also opportunities to use this tissue-targeted approach for locally controlled drug release (e.g. in joints alone/intra-articular). This way of improving drug delivery to minimize possible side effects is a long term future approach which will be examined for its feasibility during the term of the project. The overall project follows a personalized medicine approach and is driven by the prominent unmet clinical needs outlined above.

Nanodiara pooled 15 European partners from academic and industrial fields:

  1. Coordinator: Europäische Akademie GmbH, Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler, Germany
  2. Scientific coordinator: MatSearch Consulting Hofmann, Lausanne, Switzerland
  3. Charité Universitätsmedizin (team 1 et team 2), Berlin, Germany
  4. EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland
  5. University of Lund, Sweden
  6. Merck® Serono, Darmastadt, Germany
  7. AnaMar AB, Lund, Sweden
  8. Arrayon Biotechnology, Neuchâtel, Switzerland
  9. CSEM SA, Neuchâtel, Switzerland
  10. Merck Estapor/OEM-Diagnostic/Merck-Millipore, Pithiviers, France
  11. PMU Salzburg, Austria
  12. University of Fribourg, Switzerland
  13. University of Geneva, Switzerland
  14. University of Nijmegen, Netherlands
  15. University of Tartu, Estonia

The NanoDiaRA project is divided into five research work packages and four supporting work packages. While the research packages deal with fundamental research, the latter are particularly addressing dissemination, publication and valorization of the research outcome, investigation of the ethical issues, training of young investigators and the administration of the project.

WP 1: Particle coating and functionalisation and novel equipment for coating and separation
WP 2: Inflammation and tissue damage detection by cell and tissue tracking and molecular MRI based imaging
WP 3a: New Biomarker/ligand and antibody detection and development: targets, antibodies and peptides
WP 3b: New Biomarker/ligand and antibody detection and development: Clinical relevance
WP 4: Development of bioassays
WP 7: Toxicity

WP 5: Scientific Coordination and Data Management
WP 6: Ethical, Legal, and Social Aspects, Technology Assessment (ELSI)
WP 8: Dissemination of Results and Foreground, Communication, Education & Training
WP 9: Management

Role during the project:

As a scientist and WP leader at EPFL, my role was pivotal and consisted in bringing nanotechnological solutions to our biological, industrial and medical partners. As main responsibles of the WP 1, we worked in close collaborations with all the scientific WP to develop specific nanoparticles for arthritic pathologies with industrial requirements such as biocompatibility and upscalable methods to have enough quantity of materials for pharmacokinetic studies. We also studied in depth the biological behaviors of our nanohybrids (toxicity, internalization, biodistribution or Protein Corona).
