After a Ph.D thesis entitled: Enterovirus pathogenesis: Study of the viral load during meningitis and permissiveness of human brain microvascular endothelial cells, I have decided to continue with a Posdoc in the Unit of Francis Delpeyroux. My research field is now focused on the particular type Enterovirus-A71. Type considered as one of the most neurotropic among the enteroviruses.
In the longer term, my aim is to work on the expanding research field dedicated to emergent viral infectious diseases. The needs for developing treatments and study fundamental aspects open many opportunities. Both issues have caught my interest.
