A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

About

Thierry Lang joined the Institut Pasteur in Paris in 1983 where he obtained his PhD in 1987 on endocytosis in macrophages in Antoinette Ryter research group. Following a Pasteur-Roux fellowship, Thierry spend two years at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (Head of the Unit: Pr. J. Blackwell) as post-doctoral fellow working on ultrastructural analysis of molecular interaction between Leishmania parasites and their vertebrate and insect host and parameters and functions involved in antigen processing and presentation in Leishmania-infected macrophages. He then successively joined Robert Fauve sand Geneviève Milo’s team at Institut Pasteur where he analysed every step of the infectious process that characterizes the niches that Leishmania amastigotes shape at cell or tissue level using the mouse as experimental host. In november 2012, he joined the laboratory of Trypanosomatids Infectious Processes. He was mainly concentrated in the identification and characterization of Leishmania donovani parasitism features at cellular and tissue levels using hamster and mouse experimental models. He had set up in 2011 a translational project involving five partners at the Institut Pasteur and has been coordinating a PTR “Tryp imaging” project (Oct. 2011-March 2014) that put together unique expertise’s to generate efficient tools to monitoring Trypanosomatidae infection in real time at the whole organism level. These approaches may highly improve the sensitivity and the spatial resolution of infectious processes studies and provide reliable means to quantify and visualize parasites in vivo.
