Great discussion at the Institut Pasteur de Lille invited by the Center of Infection and Immunity of Lille.

A nice detour in the past of the founder of Institut Armand Frappier and at the origin of my research topics on M. tuberculosis 😉


Evolution of H. pylori.

Here is our new collaborative work with Hilde De Reuse published in PLoS pathogens.
We partially described how this bacterium has adapted to the gastric environment by completely reworking its metal homeostasis. A great collaboration funded by our common PTR Pasteur grant! A lot more to come…
