Matthew Albert was previously Director of Research INSERM and Head of the Laboratory of Dendritic Cell Immunobiology at the Institut Pasteur, Paris, leading a team in the area of dendritic cell immunobiology and tumor immunity. He graduated from Brown University, Providence, RI, USA in 1992 with a B.Sc in Chemistry, followed by a Ph.D in Immunology from The Rockefeller University, New York, USA, in 1999 and M.D. in Medicine from Cornell University Medical College, New York, USA, in 2000.
Think tank: Cancer
The malignant transformation of cells translates into a major worldwide health, social and economic burden. Efforts to define the etiology of cancer, along with the development of new therapeutic approaches to treat them, would […]
Biomarker discovery and viral disease pathogenesis
Biomarker discovery We are interested in the discovery of biomarkers that can be used to guide the clinical management of patients, and can also inform us about basic disease pathogenesis. The lab’s interest […]
Functional immune response to Mycobacteria tuberculosis derived antigen
The objective of our project is to establish feasibility for a new generation of in vitro diagnostic (IVDs) tools, applied to proof-of-concept studies in Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) infected persons and patients with TB disease. […]
1,000 healthy donors
The Milieu Intérieur Consortium has established a 1000-person healthy population-based study (stratified according to sex and age), creating an unparalleled opportunity for assessing the determinants of human immunologic variance. The Milieu Intérieur Consortium initiated […]
