In less than 180 secondes, Pauline Maisonnasse, 26 years, convinced both the public and the jury. At the end of May, she will represent the Université Paris-Saclay at the national level!

180 seconds, it seems to be a long time. But when we're talking about summarizing a phd thesis, that's very short! However, Pauline suceeded, and she convinced both the jury and the public of the Université Paris-Saclay. There were 15 candidates, all of them phd students, to participate to this challenge. But it must be one winner at the end.

Pauline Maisonnasse is a phd student for AgroParisTech / INRA. Her thesis topic was the swine flu. It's full name in french is: "Identification phénotypique et fonctionnelle des cellules dendritiques et macrophages pulmonaires porcins à l'état basal et lors d'infections Influenza".

Pauline will go to Bordeaux, at the end of May, to represent the Université Paris-Saclay at the national level of the competition. Congratulations to all the participants !
