    Feedback on the Kick-off meeting of the Institut Hors Murs Microb’UP

    The “Institut Hors Murs” Microb'UP was launched in August 2021 by the Faculty of Health of Université de Paris.


    It brings together more than 45 fundamental and clinical research teams in microbiology and infectious diseases. It is co-directed by Olivier Tenaillon (Infection, Antimicrobials, Modeling, Evolution (IAME) lab, Bichat Hospital) and Florence Niedergang (Institut Cochin).


    The objective of this “Hors Murs” Institute is to federate exchanges within a multidisciplinary community interested in microbiology and infectious diseases. By structuring this community, the institute can serve as a breeding ground for the development of ambitious collaborative projects and university-wide microbiology research strategies. The institute also aims to promote back and forth between basic research and clinical research by structuring a mixed microbiology community between clinical university hospital and fundamentalist researchers.

    The development of this community will increase the international visibility of microbiology research at Université de Paris. 


    The kick-off meeting of the “Institut Hors Murs” Microb’UP has been held at the headquarters of Université de Paris on October 12 and 13, 2021.


    The program included scientific presentations by teams from the Institute from different geographic locations, preceded by a short introduction to the specificities of these sites.


    A poster discussion session was very lively and appreciated, at the end of which two prizes were awarded for the two most noticed posters.


    The two winners are Melissa Ait Said and Corentin Aubé, both PhD students in the Host-virus Interactions team at the Institut Cochin! Congratulations to them, and a big thank you to everyone who contributed to the dynamism of this first poster session!
