Nathalie Aulner received her PhD in Molecular Biology from the University Paul Sabatier (Toulouse, France) after completing an engineer degree in Biochemistry and Biotechnology at the Institut National des Sciences Appliquées (Toulouse). She joined the Institut Pasteur in 2009 to take charge of the High Content Analysis efforts in the Imagopole-CiTech led by Pr. S. Shorte. Her areas of interest encompass the challenges of applying high content analysis to the study of infectious diseases, developing assays to achieve physiologically and clinically relevant conditions, live cell imaging and applying robust statistical methodologies. She is as well implicated in the facility training programs in microscopy and is the point of contact for all Health and Safety matters in the platform. Before joining the Institut Pasteur, she worked for several years in the United States, including as an associate research scientist at the Columbia University Screening Center (New York) led by Dr J.E. Rothman and in the Functional Proteomic Project (joined ventures between the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York and Amersham biosciences to set up a siRNA phenotypic screening facility).

FP7 Targeting the Leishmania kinome for the development of novel anti-parasitic strategies (LeishDrug)
Visceral leishmaniasis is caused by the protozoan parasites Leishmania donovani and Leishmania infantum and is a potentially fatal disease in endemic areas around the world. During the infectious cycle, Leishmania alternate between the insect […]
PTR 496 – Investigating the reciprocal relationship between macrophage inflammasome activity and intracellular Leishmania infection
Our proposal aims to decipher novel subversion strategies used by Leishmania (i) to withstand, circumvent or inhibit anti-microbial activities of host macrophages and (ii) to interfere with the induction of Leishmania-specific immune responses. We […]
Dual microscopy assay to discriminate Listeria cellular entry & vacuolar escape
We developed a novel image-based microscopy assay which allows to discriminate Listeria monocytogenes cellular entry from vacuolar escape, enabling high-content screening to identify factors specifically involved in these two steps. We generated a L. […]
