Juliette Bouyssou, PhD
Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
Juliette Bouyssou, Ph.D. is a postdoctoral researcher at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. She obtained a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in biology and bio-engineering from the School of Industrial Biology in her home country of France. She went on to pursue a Health and Life Sciences doctoral degree at Paris-Saclay University in France in collaboration with the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. As part of her doctoral work, she focused on the role of microRNAs – a specific type of RNA that can regulate many cellular processes – in blood cancers such as Multiple Myeloma and Waldenström’s Macroglobulinemia. As a postdoctoral researcher, Juliette studies the important but often overlooked subject of sex differences in leukemias such as Acute Myeloid Leukemia and Blastic Plasmacytoid Dendritic Cell Neoplasm. Her aim is to leverage those sex differences to advance our current understanding of these diseases and treat them more efficiently.
