Scientific summary

My research is carried out in the Inserm unit UMR-S-MD 1197 created in 2020 for 5 years and entitled "Stem cell-niche interactions: physiology, tumors and tissue repair".

The principal research axis to which I am devoted proposes to study and characterize the bi-directional niche/ hematopoietic stem cell interactions in physiological situations in the human embryo and during the adult life as well as in acute myeloid leukemia.

I am also studiyng the immunosuppresive and immunomodulatory properties of human fetal liver mesenchymal stem cells versus neonatal and adult mesenchymal stem cells.
