Om mig

  • Sophie completed her PhD in the Department of Physiology at the University of
    Toronto and her first postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of
    Pharmacology and Therapeutics at McGill University. In 2014, Sophie
    relocated to the Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden in the Departments
    of Clinical Sciences, Intervention and Technology and Cellular and Molecular
    Biology and the Ludwig Cancer Institute. In 2017, she started her first
    independent position as the Karolinska Institutet, where she is still still
    overseeing lab activities, and in July 2018 was recruited to the Centre de
    Recherché de Centre Hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal and the
    University of Montreal, Department of Medicine.


  • She has merged 17 years of training expertise to formulate her unique
    research niche focused on human development, using cutting edge molecular
    biology techniques including single-cell genomic-sequencing (RNA, small
    noncoding RNA, methylation), single-molecule RNA FISH, imaging,
    phenotyping, /in vitro /and /in vivo /models, and bioinformatics. The
    overall goals of her innovative research program are to determine fundamental
    mechanism(s) underlying human embryo preimplantation development and to
    identify external factors that can reprogram the offspring’s
    life-trajectories manifesting as disease/disorders with ageing. Findings
    from her work can also broadly be applied to stem cell biology and the
    improvement of Artificial Reproduction.
