The Cell Biology and Infection Department is chaired by Jean-Christophe Olivo-Marin.

 

To understand infection mechanisms we need to explore in depth how cells function both during infection and in the balance between the commensal flora and host. Three clear priorities are identified:

 

  • stepping up efforts to integrate cell biology, cell microbiology, genomics and imaging with a view to improving investigation of bacterial, viral, parasitic and prion infections;
  • developing expertise in tissue microbiology using increasingly sophisticated in vivo imaging technologies to improve understanding of infection at the whole-animal scale;
  • developing synergistic interactions with immunologists and cell biologists in other departments.

These activities are closely related to the development of new techniques such as imaging, image analysis, genomics and post-genomics.
