Caroline studied Biotechnology at the Biotechnology Engineering School of Strasbourg (ESBS) at the University of Strasbourg, France. During her PhD, she focused on the role of oncofetal programs in the development of brain tumours in Drosophila, in the group of Dr Cédric Maurange, at the Institute for Developmental Biology (IBDM), in Marseille, France.

She is now investigating the molecular players involved in tumour/microenvironment crosstalks during cancer progression.
