I am a clinical doctor specialized on internal medicine and Infectious and Tropical Diseases. My training has been completed by a PhD in Public Health and Epidemiology, pharmacovigilance training, Master’s degree of Science in human pathology (Méditerranée-Aix-Marseille II university), university diploma in “management of anti-infectious drug” and by field experience. In Cameroon, I worked as physician in charge of the adult sector and of the laboratory in a small district hospital in the Far North of Cameroon close to the Nigerian border for two years. In France, I worked during two years as Head of clinic in Infectious and Tropical Diseases department at Hôpital Saint-Louis (Paris), specialized in HIV-hepatitis and infectious disease in immunosuppressed patients including hematology (bone marrow transplant). I joined Institut Pasteur in 2013, first in the Center of Translational Science and in the Emerging Disease Epidemiology unit. I developed clinical research projects in collaboration with institutes of the Institut Pasteur International Network and provide methodological support to research teams at Institut Pasteur. Then, I was in charge of clinical research at the Pasteur Institute of Dakar. I led several clinical research projects, including clinical trials. I was leader or co-leader of European projects (EDCTP) in the areas of emerging and re-emerging diseases (ALERRT) and ethics (SEA-RAFES). I’m member of Institutional Review Board of Institut Pasteur. Currently I’m working at the Institut Pasteur Medical Center as clinician and responsible of clinical research.
