Dr Joëlle Michaud obtained her Master in medical genetics from the University of Geneva and her PhD in medical and molecular biology in 2005 at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute in Melbourne, Australia. She worked on the genetics of familial leukemia using standard and emerging high throughput technologies. She then came back to Switzerland and worked as a research fellow at the University of Lausanne using “state of the art” high throughput technologies applied to transcription regulation. She joined Gene Predictis SA as the laboratory director in July 2011.
She has a strong background in medical genetics, molecular biology and bioinformatics. During her academic career she published in high quality journals such as Genome research, Plos Genetics and Blood, among others. Her goal, along with the team, is to further develop the catalogue of genetic tests offered by Gene Predictis, based on strong scientific knowledge.
