Sourire d'Anne        WHO WAS ANNE ?

Anne was born on September 29, 1978. Very early, her character proved to be cheerful, spontaneous and lively. After brilliant Latin-English studies she hesitated between literature and pharmacy studies. She began literature studies but very quickly switched to pharmacy studies. After 2 years at the University of Lausanne and one year of internship she completed her studies at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, ending with a Master's Thesis on axonal growth. With her diploma in hands and after several months of backpacking through Asia, to quench her thirst for discovery of landscapes and people, she naturally turned to research on tropical diseases. With her usual enthusiasm, she joined an international project on Leishmaniasis at the University Hospital of Geneva. |>> Her article |. In January 2006, she joined the Swiss Tropical Institute in Basel to participate in a clinical study on African trypanosomiasis in Congo. Her career was brutally stopped by a cursed accident of kite on March 27th, 2006.

Anne was a sunshine to her family, friends and all those who worked with her.

We miss her. Awfully.

The Anne Maurer-Cecchini Foundation was created to continue her involvement. May it help to relieve some of those people she loved to meet.
