Expanding her expertise to the human biotechnology, she joined the Laboratoire de Biotechnologie Moléculaire (LBTM) of the University of Lausanne in 2003 before leaving the lab bench and orienting toward management of academic structures. She coordinated national and regional centers like the NCCBI (National Competence Center for Biomedical Imaging), and the CIBM (Center for Biomedical Imaging) and recently obtained a DAS in 'Management of non-profit organizations' from the Geneva School of Economics and Management.
