Aurore Claude-Taupin, Senior Postdoctoral Researcher in Etienne Morel's lab has been honored with the esteemed Fondation L'Oréal - UNESCO For Women In Science French Young Talents.
Aurore's journey towards a career in biological research began during her BTS Biotechnology studies. Her interest in this field grew as she conducted her thesis on the role of autophagy in breast cancer. Later, she moved to the United States with her husband and 5-month old daughter for a Postdoctoral position. There she looked into the mechanisms of cell self-repair, with a focus on molecules involved in autophagy.
Now, Aurore continues her research as Senior Postdoctoral fellow in Etienne Morel's Lab. Her current research interests revolve around exploring the promising potential of autophagy in the development of innovative cancer treatments.About Fondation L'Oréal - UNESCO For Women In Science French Young Talents
