Karine Raymond

Karine Raymond studied Molecular and Cellular Biology at the University of Grenoble, France (1992-1997). She received her PhD (2001) from the University of Grenoble based on her research performed at the C.E.A, Grenoble, on how regulators of the GTPases of the Rho family control morphogenetic movements resembling wound healing, during Drosophila embryogenesis. Karine subsequently focused her interest on how epithelial cells from pluri- and pseudo-stratified epithelia (skin and mammary glands) interact with their environment at the Netherlands Cancer institute, Amsterdam (2001-2006) and at Curie Institute, Paris (2006-2012) by using mouse and cell culture models. She obtained a tenure position at INSERM in 2013 and she joined the department of Anatomy of LUMC in 2017 within the hiPSC hotel where she is developing skin and heart disease models.
