  • Post Doctoral Fellow
    January 2009 --- December 2010
    Investigation on the immunoregulatory activity of Mesenchymal stem cells in an in vitro and in vivo models. I learned to work in an international environment, initiate and develop mesenchymal stem cells extraction, culture and identification. I also learned to work on various murine in vivo models for colitis, encephalomyelitis and tumor development. I learned flow cytometry and immunofluorescence as well.

  • PhD Student
    September 2004 --- December 2008
    Understanding the mechanism and Identifying the proteins responsible for the anti-apoptotic activity of IL-9 on T cell lymphomas. Investigating the regulation of Matrix Metalloproteases expression by anti-apoptotic cytokines like IL-9 and CCL-1. I acquired experience in cell culture, microarrays, molecular biology, gene transfection, immunology. I also learned to collaborate with other laboratories, present my data and write scientific papers.
