Lab welcomes new rotation student Samuel Ovadia.

Samuel is a PhD student in the Department of Immunobiology. He earned his bachelor’s degree in Life Science from University Pierre and Marie Curie (UPMC, Paris, France), and his Master’s degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology (Major Immunology) from UPMC and Pasteur Institute (Paris, France). Samuel completed his master’s thesis at Imagine Institute (Paris, France) where he studied the genetic basis of primary immune deficiencies. He also worked as a postgraduate in the Department of Immunobiology at Yale University, where he focused on characterizing the functional diversity of circulating neutrophils via a behavioral approach. By interacting with the Wang lab, Samuel aims to further his knowledge about the biology and dynamics of chromatin compaction and its functional impact on immune cells. During his spare time, he likes to satisfy his scientific curiosity by reading different kinds of textbooks and essays from experts in the fields. He also likes to paint, and to do photography. Welcome, Samuel!
