    Microorganisms studied in the 3I department


    The Infection, Immunity and Inflammation (3I) department studies numerous microorganisms (viruses, bacteria, parasites) to better understand their biology and/or pathogenicity, and to study the interactions between pathogens and host organisms. Using molecular and cellular approaches as well as animal models and human samples, our teams have made major contributions on hacking strategies for microorganisms and the role of the innate and adaptive immune systems against infectious diseases. Several teams are also developing programs aimed at translating their fundamental research into vaccine, diagnostic or therapeutic approaches.
