Elodie Hatchi, PhD
Elodie is a senior scientist in the Tothova Lab. She received bachelor and master’s degrees in Biochemistry, and completed her PhD at the Institute of Molecular Genetics of Montpellier, France in 2009. There, she focused her work on E4F1, a new transcription factor and ubiquitin ligase, involved in the regulation of 2 major tumor suppression pathways, p53 and INK4A/ARF. She developed a mouse model to study E4F1’s role in hematopoietic malignancies. She then moved to Boston to continue expanding her knowledge in cancer biology and worked on new avenues of BRCA1-mediated DNA damage repair in the Livingston Lab at Dana-Farber Cancer Instiute. Since, she explored the role and the new modalities of RNA in genomic integrity maintenance. Outside of the lab, she’s an artist/musician who also enjoys the outdoors, exercising, cooking, and quality time with family and friends.
