What I do at MMV

As a cross-project Project Manager, I support the Project Directors in planning, execution and reporting of their projects from antimalarial candidate selection to clinical proof-of-concept.

Why I work at MMV

Resistance has emerged in the Greater Mekong Subregion, resulting in high levels of treatment failure with some artemisinin-based combination therapies. I feel privileged to join MMV at the time of this new challenge and to be part of new approaches to overcome drug resistance. It’s very stimulating to work with such knowledgeable and dedicated colleagues with the same goal of defeating malaria.

More about me

I hold a master’s degree in biochemistry & biotechnology from INSA Lyon, France. Prior to MMV, I worked in the development and validation of bioanalytical immunoassays in the lab to support preclinical and clinical studies of fully-human therapeutic antibodies. Then I transitioned to project management, interacting with all functions internally and with Contract Research Organizations (CROs) and partners externally to ensure projects are delivered on time, within scope and within budget. I’m proud of having taken part in the team effort to develop the first and only FDA-approved treatment for primary HLH, thereby helping children suffering from this life-threatening disease.

Project management and bioanalytical assays for large-molecules. Aside from work, I’m always ready to go for a run in the summertime or for a cross-country skiing trip in the winter.
