I was working on two projects related to Huntington disease. One has for aim the replacement of the mutant HTT transcript by a corrected transcript using trans-splicing. And the second is to develop a method to generate transgenic cells carrying the full human mutant huntingtin gene (HD) using homologous recombination. Our aim is to generate a germline-transmissible non-human model of HD using recently developed tools (TALEN, CRISPR).

My project was to develop a mouse model of Asxl1-related leukemia. In parallel, lethally irradiated mice were injected through tail-vain with transgenic ES cells expressing a mutated Asxl1 gene expected to generate a truncated protein: following a procedure well established in the lab, the injected mice would then recover bone marrow cells (including their immune system and haematopoietic system) expressing the transgenic cells for further monitoring and analyses.
