Nos travaux portent sur les mécanismes moléculaires mis en jeu au cours d’infections microbiennes ainsi que les réactions immunitaires activées chez l’hôte en utilisant la drosophile comme modèle. 

 

Research Interest

Insects possess efficient mechanisms for detecting and neutralising microbial infection. The application of Drosophila genetics to deciphering these mechanisms has generated insights into insect immunity and uncovered similarities with mammalian innate immune responses. Our research focuses on understanding mechanisms of microbial infection and corresponding host defence responses in Drosophila using genetic and genomic approaches.
