In 1997, he started High University Studies of Biology where he took genetics as an option to his studies. In 2000, he started his specialization in Hematology, as a junior in clinical Hematology at University Hospital Center of Oran. He performed one year training on autologous and allogeneic stem cell transplant at the “Pierre and Marie Curie Center of Algiers”. In February 2003, while still a Junior Hematologist, he was placed in the hematology laboratory, where he performed leukemias and lymphomas immunophenotyping by flow cytometry. Once his hematology specialization completed in March 2004, he worked as a cytologist at the central laboratory at Pediatric anti-cancer Center of Oran, where he reviewed blood and bone marrow smears since there was no cytometer available there.
He worked as an assistant professor at the department of Hematology and Stem Cell Therapy at University Hospital EHU1st November, in Oran with Prof MA Bekadja. In September 2009, they started to perform autologous stem cell transplant without freezing of the grafts.In February 2010, he received a promotion, as the Head Chief of the Hemobiology department. In Mai 2010; he received, with MA Bekadja the honorees from the “Algerian Society of Hematology and Blood Transfusion” for his work on the ASCT without cryopresevation.

His research has focused on elucidating the role of NFAT pathway in immune response, bone homeostasis and tumor immunobiology as well as the role of Brg1 gene in development and cancer. He has shown that CD28 plays part of its co-stimulatory role by increasing nuclear retention of NFATc1 in T cells. He has also found that NFATc1 regulates osteoblasts and a slight nuclear expression can cause osteopetrosis.

 Biography
Research Interest :

Studying the web of relationships and interdependencies the immune system undertakes. I have been at first studying how B cells and immunoglobulin influence T cell development in the thymus promoting T cell receptor diversification and lymphocyte repertoire shaping and how can that be used to modulate peripheral T cell function. Recently, I have projects examining the role of immunoglobulin as a promoter of a better and faster immune reconstitution. Also, I am developing translational studies that apply to the clinical field the basic research I have been conducting. In this sense, I am studying the effect of B cell depletion, resulted by treatment with biological therapies against B cells, on the immune system. In general, my areas of interests are mainly how to apply fundamental immunological concepts and discoveries to the clinical field, mostly to hematological malignancies and treatment options, mostly in the area of multiple myeloma. Other areas of scientific research are pathogenesis of lymphoid malignancies, immunological responses to cancer and modulation of biological treatments.
