The Pasteur Museum is housed in the apartment where Louis Pasteur spent his final seven years and offers a rare behind-the-scenes look at the living and working environment of the world-renowned scientist. Visitors can gain a unique insight into his everyday life alongside his wife and can admire his rich and diverse scientific work.
The Institut Pasteur’s scientific strategy focuses on developing original and innovative topics and promoting interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary cooperation and approaches. The Institut Pasteur teams have access to the technological resources needed to speed up and further improve the quality of their outstanding research.
Ever since the introduction of the world’s first "Technical Microbiology" course in 1889, teaching has been a priority for the Institut Pasteur. The Institut Pasteur has an international reputation for quality teaching that attracts students from all over the world who come to further their training or top up their degree programs.
With international courses, PhD and postdoctoral traineeship, each institute of the Institut Pasteur International Network (RIIP) contributes to the transmission of knowledge with the training of young researchers all around the world. In this context, doctoral and postdoctoral programmes, study and traineeship fellowships are available to scientists. Alongside training, dynamism and attractiveness of RIIP will result in the creation of 4-year group for the young researchers.
Characterization of SUMOylations/deSUMOylations induced by Listeria monocytogenes and their roles in bacterial infection
My research studies are focused on the impact of Listeria monocytogenes on the SUMOylation machinery of the infected cell, and the impact of SUMOylation on infection. SUMOylation consists in the reversible modification of a target protein by the covalent fixation of an ubiquitin-like protein called SUMO. SUMO-modified proteins disclose altered properties and are involved in many essential cellular processes like regulation of transcription, nucleocytoplasmic transport, DNA repair, protein stability, and stress response. The impact of pathogenic bacteria like Listeria on these specific post-translational modifications remains yet completely unknown.
My aims are to identify cellular or bacterial proteins specifically SUMOylated or deSUMOylated upon infection by L. monocytogenes, and to understand the roles of these modifications in the life cycle of this pathogen.
