Researcher biography

Valentine graduated in 2010 with a Master of Engineering in Bioinformatics and Modelling at the National Institute of Applied Sciences of Lyon, France. There she positioned herself at the interface between life sciences, computer sciences and mathematics. Valentine then honed her ability to work collaboratively within a wet lab research team, leading the data analysis of human and mouse transcriptome sequencing projects aimed at identifying the RNA binding sites of a multiprotein complex and the role of this complex in the regulation of alternative splicing. In 2013, she joined the Genome Integrity, Immunity and Cancer group at the Pasteur Institute where she was in charge of the development of cancer genomics pipelines to identify mutations and chromosomal rearrangements in mouse models of lymphoid cancers. In 2016 she moved to Australia as a Bioinformatics Officer at the UQ Diamantina Institute where she analyzed genomics data in collaboration with eight research teams on a variety of cancer types and diseases. In 2018, she started a joint appointment between the UQ Genome Innovation Hub and the QCIF Facility for Advanced Bioinformatics.
