AMI Alumni, BioNanomaterials

Christophe was born in Fribourg (Switzerland) and moved to Basel at an early age. After accomplishing his university-entrance diploma in 2006 with a Major in Latin, he began his studies in Biology at the University of Basel in 2007. In 2010, he obtained his Bachelor of Science in Integrative Biology. He then pursued a Master's degree in Molecular Biology at the Biozentrum and Swiss Nanoscience Institute. During this time, he investigated the nanomechanical properties of cancer-affected tissues by atomic force microscopy and how these properties change with ongoing disease progression. His scientific interests are mainly focused on cancer biology and nanotechnology, which in turn led him to the Adolphe Merkle Institute for his doctoral thesis in 2012.
