Professional experience

Work History
Oct 2010 - Jun 2014

PhD candidate

Université de Strasbourg, Chemistry department

Doctoral thesis preparation within a joint PhD program in Membrane biophysics between University of Strasbourg and the University of Basel (Biozentrum).

The goal of my PhD project was providing better understanding of the interaction between cationic amphipathic peptides with model membrane and nucleic acid, and the mechanism of gene delivery by those peptides, which will allow the development of more efficient peptide-based transfection agents. The thermodynamic and structural parameters of such interaction were established.
