Postdoctoral Fellow

Stephanie obtained her PhD degree in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry in 2012 at the University of Sciences and Technology in Montpellier, France. Her PhD research focused on studying the modulation of hematopoietic progenitor cell engraftment and T cell differentiation by conditioning regimen and different routes of progenitor administration. She joined Dr Crooks’ team in October 2013, where she is pursuing her interest in T-cell development from a different perspective: by investigating the mechanisms triggering thymic stroma growth and regeneration, as well as the early events leading to thymic involution. Besides being a thymus lover, Stephanie enjoys exploring the City of Angels, traveling, photography, swimming and she loves baking desserts for her friends.
