Find the clone that will relapse.

Christophe Poulet

Computational & Molecular Biologist

Hi! I am an inventive biologist that lives in Liege, Belgium. I hold a PhD degree in Molecular and Computational Genetics, from the University of Liege, Belgium.

My main expertise is in tumor classification to diagnose cancer subtypes or to predict treatment response to cancer therapies. I am looking towards the identification of molecular and cellular events that would drive tumourigenesis from one aberrant cell to such a complex and heterogeneous mixture.

Isolate signal within mixtures.

I am convinced of the tumour evolution theory. Such Tumorigenesis may lead to the genesis of numerous populations carrying distinct genetic material.

Relapses are still inevitable for many types of tumors. Such bad outcomes may result from the combination of tumor genetic events and immunosuppressive environment that build the basement of therapy resistance.

Identification and integration of non-invasive information (cellular and molecular) can help monitoring the patient response to treatment.
