Catherine Rabouille received her PhD in biochemistry in 1988, followed by postdoctoral experiences at the Joslin Diabetes Centre (Boston, MA), the UMC Utrecht (NL) and the Imperial Cancer Research Fund (London, UK) in the lab of Graham Warren where she started working on the Golgi and his fate during mitosis using electron microscopy. In 1998, she was the recipient of a Career Development Award from the Medical Research Council (UK) to set up her lab at the Wellcome trust Centre for Cell biology (Edinburgh, UK). There, she started her work on the functional organization of the early secretory pathway during Drosophila development. In 2002, she was offered an Associate professorship at the UMC Utrecht at the Department of Cell Biology where she continued her line of research focusing on Drosophila oogenesis as well as S2 cells. In 2010, she became a senior group leader at the Hubrecht Institute.
