Safia Safa-tahar-henni

PhD student in Bioinformatics

IRIC - Université de Montréal

During her master degree in Bioinformatics, Safia Safa-tahar-henni completed two internships: the first one at IBPC where she studied flexible segment proteins docking by a multi-copy approach coupling with a robotic loop generation algorithm. The second one was at CNAM, where she worked on statistical and integrative methods to uncover a part of the missing heritability in psychiatric disorders. She is a PhD candidate in bioinformatics in Dr. Brian Wilhelm’s lab, co-directed by Dr. Sébastien Lemieux. Safia is currently working on a 12,000 small molecule screen on different types of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) samples. Her goal is to link cells viability in response to compounds, to their expression and mutation profiles.
