Dr. Coppin received her masters degree in Immunology in 2010 from Aix Marseille University, France. She succeeded to her PhD in 2015. Her PhD have been performed in the Centre de Recherche en Cancerologie de Marseille CRCM Inserm U1068 and Institut Paoli Calmettes IPC in Marseille, France under Jacques Nunes direction. Her work was supported by fellowships from the Region Provence Alpes Cote d’Azur–Innate Pharma and Fondation Association pour la Recherche sur le Cancer pour la Recherche sur le Cancer A.

Her PhD work has been subdivided in two studies focusing on Dok (Downstream of Tyrosine kinase) proteins, known as negative regulators of RAS/MAPK and AKT/PI3K signaling pathways. First she studied involvement of DOK2 point mutations in Chronical Myelomonocytic Leukemia CMML, highlighting DOK2 role as haploinsufficient tumor suppressor gene in this SMD/SMP hematological disorder. In an other hand she studied role of dok1 and dok2 in cell cycle regulation of Hematopoietic Stem and Progenitor Cells HSPC.

In 2016, she joined Dr. Partha Dutta’s lab in the Vascular Medicine Institute at the University of Pittsburgh to investigate the change Hematopoietic Stem and Progenitor Cells HSPC activation and differenciation and functions of inflammatory cells in cardiovascular diseases.
