Immune Regulation & Vaccinology
Unité de Régulation Immunitaire et Vaccinologie
Institut Pasteur/Inserm U1041, Equipe Labellisé par la Ligue Contre le Cancer
Head of Unit: Pr Claude Leclerc, PhD
The general objective of our unit is to bridge the gap between fundamental immunology and vaccine development, combining our expertise in vaccinology and our commitment to elucidation of the mechanisms by which immune responses are induced and regulated. Our strategy was based on a highly integrated and fully dynamic program, the clinical and fundamental aspects of which being complementary, and leading to new concepts in vaccination and their validation in various experimental models and clinical trials.
Our projects are focused on the understanding of the mechanisms that control the activation and regulation of T cell responses in adults and neonates and on the development of new strategies of vaccination against tumors and infections.
