      I cam up with a diagram that (hypothetically) explain how the microbiome influence disease risk using the genetic marker of lactase (enzyme responsible for digesting lactose)

      Hi Bridie, I made molecules that help us study a protein that our lab had discovered only shortly before. This was exciting, as I really felt being at the most cutting edge of science!

      Bonjour! 🙂

      My favorite thing is that after obtaining my PhD and I became a scientist in France, I managed to travel around the word, live and work in different countries, that really made me as I am today and allowed me to meet and chat with many people from many different background.
      That is really something I like about my life 🙂

      My favourite thing that I have done so far is join a group of scientists working on using computers to find cures for diseases like cancer. It’s great because I get to talk with scientists from all over the world, including America, Italy, India, Germany, and many more.

      I’ve learned English! English is really important for scientists because everything is in English and now I can work, write, read and discuss correctly with people from different country.
      I know that may not be extraordinary for you because English is your native language, but I was bad in English at school and I barely spoke English when I came in Ireland to start my PhDs.
