    The 2016 Pasteur Vallery-Radot Prize

    Simonetta Gribaldo and David DiGregorio, winners of the 2016 Pasteur Vallery-Radot Prize. The Pasteur Vallery-Radot Prize was set up by Jacqueline Pasteur Vallery-Radot, the wife of Louis Pasteur’s grandson. Each year, the prize goes to two French Institut Pasteur scientists under the age of 50 who have carried out a major scientific project in the field of biology or physics/chemistry over the last five years.

    The relentless dynamism of the adult brain

    Scientists were able to make real-time observations over a period of several months that reveal how new adult-born neurons are formed and evolve in the olfactory bulb of mice. They made the surprising discovery that there is constant structural plasticity in the connections established by these new neurons with the circuits into which they are recruited.

    Malaria - First global mapping of artemisinin resistance confirms definitively that resistance is confined to Southeast Asia and has not spread to sub-Saharan Africa

    The first global mapping of artemisinin resistance (the KARMA study) has definitively confirmed that resistance to the main drug currently used in the treatment of Plasmodium falciparum malaria is for the moment confined to Southeast Asia and has not spread to sub–Saharan Africa.

    Antibodies that are effective against both dengue and Zika viruses

    Scientists have identified antibodies that can efficiently neutralize both the dengue virus and the Zika virus. The description of the binding site for these antibodies on the viral envelope, identical for both viruses, could lead to the development of a universal vaccine that offers simultaneous protection against dengue and Zika virus disease.

    Identification of a therapeutic compound for a genetic form of autism spectrum disorders thanks to high throughput screening

    A team of researchers has highlighted the therapeutic potential of lithium in a patient with a rare form of autism spectrum disorder associated with SHANK3 gene mutation. This molecule, usually used to treat bipolar disorder, was identified thanks to high throughput screening of chemical compounds on human neurons derived from pluripotent stem cells, including those of the treated patient.

    When Listeria attacks the intestinal microbiota

    Although several Listeria strains can cause listeriosis, some are particularly virulent. This is because they secrete a toxin that damages the intestinal microbiota, preventing it from serving as a barrier and promoting infection.

    HIV: Identification of key immune response receptors in patients spontaneously controlling infection

    A small number of patients infected by HIV spontaneously control viral replication without antiretroviral therapy, and do not develop the disease. The ability of these rare patients, known as "HIV controllers", to suppress HIV replication appears to be down to a highly effective immune response. Scientists observed that CD4+ T immune cells in these patients were capable of recognizing tiny quantities of the virus.

    Meningococcal disease: identification of a sexually transmitted variant

    A study from the University of Würzburg (Germany) and the Institut Pasteur (France) elucidates the mechanisms of the emergence of an outbreak of meningococcal disease in men who have sex with men (MSM). These results are published in the open access journal PLOS ONE.

    Key cellular factors for chikungunya virus replication identified

    Scientists from the Institut Pasteur, Inserm and the Max Planck Institute have used high-throughput screening to identify the cellular factors involved in the replication of chikungunya virus in human cells. These findings have revealed potential therapeutic targets that could help tackle this virus.
