Welcome to Amandine !

My name is Amandine Batté and I have joined Jolanda van Leeuwen’s lab on November 2019 as a postdoc.
I am French and grew up in Normandy where I got my Bachelor of Life Science at the University of Rouen. I moved to Paris to complete my Master at the Magistère Européen de Génétique from the University Paris Diderot. During this period, I had the opportunity to do an internship in Rodney Rothstein’s lab at Columbia University where I discovered the amazing world of yeast genetics!
After that, I did my PhD in the group of Karine Dubrana at the CEA of Fontenay-aux-Roses (Paris area) studying the impact of nuclear organization and chromatin structure on double-strand break repair. After my PhD, I moved to the Netherlands to join the group of Haico van Attikum at Leiden University Medical Center to identify new chromatin factors involved in the replication stress response. 
During this postdoc, I will work on identifying suppressors of genes sensitive to drug(s) challenging genome integrity.
I’m glad to start this new adventure here at the CIG and look forward to meet you all!
