In 2003, Caroline Le Guiner completed her PhD in Sciences, specializing in genetic and molecular biology particularly in the study of the regulation of alternative splicing. During this work, she was attached to the Cancer Research Institute in Nantes. After years of basic research on the cellular regulation mechanisms, she aspires to use the results of her work in a more concrete way. Thus, her great interest in medicine and patients led her towards applied research. Philippe Moullier, a medical doctor by training, who is also a researcher at INSERM and the founder of Nantes Gene Therapy Laboratory, accepted her in for her post doctorate work. 11 years later, she is still working in the same lab, where she is leading a gene therapy research program, whose goal is to develop drugs to treat a rare disease, Duchenne muscular dystrophy. A first clinical trial is expected to begin within a few months.
