Check out our last collaboration with Institut Pasteur and University of Würzburg that elucidates the mechanisms of the emergence of an outbreak of meningococcal disease in men who have sex with men (MSM). These results are published in the open access journal :
Welcome and great success for your respective projects on the anti-neisseria compounds in collaboration with S. Laplante and in Mycobacterium tuberculosis cell wall evolution.
We welcome also Estelle Anceaume from M.Sc. Imagerie Cellulaire, Université de Rouen-France. Great success for your project related to the management of the Electron Microscopy platform.
A lot of new energy!
Today is a greatly intense day like you have only once in a year in research.
Our grant called “Bacterial Cell-Wall Evolution” just get accepted by NSERC and the article “Evolutionary events associated with an outbreak of meningococcal disease in men who have sex with men” also.
Another good news, the article of our collaborator Alastaire McEwan just get accepted in Frontiers in Microbiology. We describe the exchange of nmlR-adhC-estD locus between two well-known nasopharyngeal pathogens (Haemophilus influenzae and Neisseria menigitidis).
