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.
