Welcome to Khadidja!

Hello, my name is khadidja KACIMI, I am Algerian and did my masters degree in molecular and cellular biology in Rennes (France).

I did my first internship at the Institute of genetics and development of Rennes (IGDR) where I worked on BRAF inhibitors drug resistance in melanoma cancer. I did my second internship at L’Institut de recherche en santé, environnement et travail (Irset) in Rennes where I worked on the effect of a probiotic treatment on postpartum depression in a rat model. I have now joined Prof Fajas’ Lab to work under the supervision of Dr Sarah GELLER on the role of CDK4 in glial cells in the hypothalamus in metabolism,reproduction and stress.
