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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
