She leads an INSERM laboratory in “Functional Genomics of Solid Tumors”, with a focus on liver, mesothelial and renal tumors. Her team aims to develop basic genomic approaches based on human tumors analyses to identify new mechanisms of tumorigenesis and to transfer this knowledge into biomarkers that could be introduced in clinical care. In particular, the group was pioneer in the elucidation of the molecular classification of benign and malignant liver tumors. Currently, she is executive secretary of ILCA (International Liver Cancer Association) and she acts as co-Editor for Journal of Hepatology.
