Anna-Maria Olziersky, PhD


Amy did her PhD with Pr. P. Meraldi (University of Geneva) on the mechanisms of chromosome segregation during mitosis following genetic and chemical perturbations (2016-2019).
She spent 6 months deriving ovarian tumors organoids from high-grade serous ovarian carcinoma (HGSC) and she further analyzed by flow cytometry the expression pattern of tumor infiltrating lymphocytes and epithelial markers present in the ascites of HGSC.


Maria Josefina Lascano Maillard, PhD


Josefina, biologist, did her PhD with Pr. J. Luban (University of Geneva, University of Massachusetts Medical School) on the role of TRIM5 in innate immune cell signaling (2009-2014). She gained experience as a post-doc in bioinformatic, programming and data mining at the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatic (SIB). She offered her expertise to analyse RNAseq datasets from mucinous cystic neoplasms of the pancreas.




Beata Rak, MD, PhD student


Beata is resident in internal medicine and a visiting PhD student from the University of Warsaw, Poland. During her 6 months’ internship in the Labidi-Galy group, Beata worked on the impact of overexpression of cyclin E on breast cancer. Beat is now finishing her PhD on endometrial carcinomas in Warsaw.




Sarah Stuckelberger, MD


Sarah received her MD from the Faculty of Medicine of Geneva and started a residency in obstetrics/gynecology at the University Hospital of Lausanne. She spent 3 months’ internship with Dr Labidi-Galy working on BRCA2 mutations in ovarian cancer. Currently, Sarah is completing a post-doctoral research fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania with a focus on a mouse models of high-grade serous ovarian carcinoma.
