Outbreak Investigation Task Force
The recent epidemics of Lassa fever in Nigeria, Ebola virus disease in West Africa, MERS-CoV in the Middle East, Yellow Fever in DRC, Angola and Brazil, avian influenza in Asia and Africa and Zika […]
The Southeast Asia encephalitis project
An integrative approach to understand and fight infectious encephalitis in children An encephalitis is an acute inflammation of the central nervous system associated with neurologic dysfunction. The most common etiologies are infections by […]
300 to 400 million cases of dengue fever occur each year worldwide. Spreading rapidly, more than 40% of the world’s population is now at risk of contracting dengue This transversal program brings together talents […]
Bacterial Infections and antibiotic Resistant Diseases among Young children in low-Income countries: an international cohort study Currently, antibiotic resistance surveillance networks and epidemiologic research focus mainly on industrialized countries. However, developing these activities […]
Understanding protective humoral immunity in asymptomatic dengue-infected individuals
Dengue is caused by dengue virus (DENV), a virus which can be transmitted by Aedes mosquitos. Half of the world’s population live in areas where the mosquito and the virus are circulating. Infection by […]
Pasteur International Center for Research on Emerging Infectious Diseases
We established an Emerging Infectious Disease Research Center in Southeast Asia and West/Central Africa with an inter-continental one-health approach designed to improve the capacity to respond rapidly and effectively to outbreaks. We built on […]
The European Virus Archive Goes Global
EVA-GLOBAL objective is to generate the largest accessible collection of human, animal and plant viruses in the world and move beyond the current state-of-the-art to provide an increasingly valuable resource and service to the […]
Field Test for Rabies Diagnostic (FiTeRaD)
The FiTeRaD (Field Tests for Rabies Diagnostic) project aims to develop and validate, in laboratory and in the field, the first point of care tests (POCT) for the rapid detection of the etiological agent […]
Targeting Malaria Epigenetics
Malaria is a tropical disease due to a parasite named Plasmodium. It is a global health problem, still causing more than 450.000 deaths each year (mostly African children) and over 200 million infections (http://www.who.int/malaria/en/). […]
Dengue virus genotype replacements: investigating viral fitness differences driving the evolution of dengue epidemics Phylogenetic analyses have revealed that dengue virus (DENV) evolutionary dynamics are often characterized by the replacement of a DENV genotype […]
Background and Rationale
Despite the immense and encouraging progresses made over the last decade, malaria remains a major public health concern. Intensifying efforts against malaria along with an unprecedented increase in public and private funding have […]
A descriptive analysis of pertussis in 4 different regions of the world Coordinated by Fabien Taieb, physician affiliated with the Center for Translational Science at the Institut Pasteur, responsible for the coordination of the […]
DENFREE consortium – Dengue Framework for Resisting Epidemics in Europe
The main objective of the programme is to focus on finding key factors determining dengue transmission and dynamics in order to develop new tools and strategies for controlling dengue transmission. We will estimate the […]
Enterovirus A 71 (EV-A71) is an emerging pathogen that is circulating worldwide and mostly causes hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD) in children. However, in many cases, EV-A71 causes neurological complications, such as meningitis, […]
Mosquito genetic variation in dose-response to dengue virus
This project investigates the entomological genetic determinants of human DENV infectiousness to mosquitoes. Specifically, we are testing the hypothesis that mosquitoes are genetically variable in their dose-response to a DENV-infectious blood meal. We recently […]
Population biology of the bacterial pathogen Klebsiella pneumoniae
Klebsiella pneumoniae is one of the most urgent threats to public health given its increasing resistance to antimicrobial agents including carbapenems, considered as last-resort antibiotics. In this project we aim to understand the ecological, epidemiological and […]
Alerting and Surveillance for Infectious Disease Epidemics
In a context of increasing globalization of trade, the growth in international flows of travelers and goods fuels the spread of infectious diseases. The need for a global alert and response network for infectious diseases […]
Enterovirus EV71 pathogenesis
This project aims to study the pathogenesis of EV71-associated encephalitis. It combines in vitro and in vivo approaches.
Our main objective is to increase the knowledge regarding the human virome during homeostasis and diseases. We mainly focus on: immunocompromised patients, where new pathogens and new associations between known pathogens and diseases at found at higher frequency than […]
