The Immunology Department
The Department of Immunology, which includes 13 research units and 2 technical platforms composed of 170 scientists, has a shared interest in exploring the fundamental processes of immunity with the hope to provide new insight into disease pathogenesis, inspire novel vaccines and design unique therapeutic strategies. Moreover, we share a commitment to training the next generation of scientists dedicated to research excellence in the field of immunology.

News in the Department
Georges, Jacques et Elias Canetti 2012 Prize to Claude Leclerc
Claude Leclerc received the Jacques et Elias Canetti 2012 Prize on December 4th.
Her laboratory activity is focused on the understanding of the mechanisms that control the activation and regulation of T cell responses and on the development of new strategies of vaccination against tumors and infections.
The Department of Immunology coordinates an Initial Training Network (ITN
The Department of Immunology coordinates an Initial Training Network (ITN) funded by the European Union Marie Curie Actions called HOMIN: « Host Microbe Interactions in Health and Disease : Interface with the Immune System ». This program aims to provide scientific education through the study of host-microbe interactions with particular focus on immune responses and vaccine development. Five institutions based in three European countries participate in the HOMIN program and will collaborate with an array of European academic and private associated partners. Four PhD student positions in the Department of Immunology will be available within this program, see job offers.

Graft rejection at the cellular level filmed in 3D
In an effort to clarify these mechanisms immunologists from the Institut Pasteur and Inserm - Philippe Bousso (1) and Susanna Celli (2), of the Dynamics of Immune Responses unit, and Matthew Albert (3), of the Dendritic Cell Immunobiology unit – have used high power microscopy technology to non-invasively film the cellular process in animals. It was on a murine ear skin graft model that they were, for the first time, able to watch in vivo, in real-time, and within the thickness of the tissues, the “ballet” of immune cells taking their places during the graft rejection.
