Lucile Alexandre, a former member of CATCH-U-DNA project won in October 2018  the French L’Oreal–UNESCO for Women in Science Fellowship, a program aimed at  rewarding 30 young female  researchers for the quality of their research. Her work in  Stéphanie Descroix’s team involved the application of the microfluidic fluidized bed to study the possibilities of reducing the ratio between the two proteins responsible for preeclampsia on pregnant women. She developed an extraction system based on a suspension of magnetic beads that allows the ratio to be corrected in the blood.
