Dr Florence Naillat received her PhD degree from Oulu University in 2011 in the field of developmental biology and then she went for her post-doctoral training in Dr Kelsey’s laboratory, Babraham Institute (Cambridge, UK). She learnt sequencing methods and acquired expertise on epigenetic mechanisms during adult female germ cells. After nearly 3-years in UK as an Academy of Finland post-doctoral fellow, she joined the faculty of Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine. Dr Naillat’s research focuses on multidisciplinary fields combining human samples and molecular biology by establishing a translational project with Oulu University Hospital. Her research aims to identify new genetic markers of women fertility, to develop infertility models and to contribute to the better understanding of this disease.
