Services expertise

Dr Géraldine Daneau studied pharmacy at Université Catholique de Louvain. She graduated in 2004, including three years of being a research student with Pr Olivier Feron. She did her PhD in the same lab, on the link between endothelium and solid tumor mass, using molecular biology to study the influence of hypoxia on tumor progression and metastasis.

She started her post-doc at ITM in 2009 at the immunology unit. She supports the capacity building of the Laboratoire de Bactériologie-Virologie in Dakar, Senegal, with studies on HIV and tuberculosis immunology. She also worked one year with the network on laboratory quality management, helping with a study in Mozambique, and with the network on HIV. In 2011, she joined in addition the mycobacteriology unit to coordinate the network on tuberculosis, facilitating the exchanges and collaboration between tuberculosis research labs in West and Central Africa. The network counts now seven labs,  in Benin, Burkina Faso, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Mali, Rwanda, Senegal, and The Gambia. Besides project management, she shares her knowledge of molecular biology applicable on the new tuberculosis diagnostic tools.
