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

Salmonella typhimuriumThe French National Reference Centre (CNR) for enterohaemorrhagic Escherichia coli, Shigella and Salmonella originated from a laboratory created at the end of the 1940s by Prof. L. Le Minor, which became a reference worldwide for the identification of Salmonella and a national reference for enteropathogenic Escherichia coli (EPEC). In 1965, this laboratory, the Unité des Entérobactéries (Enterobacteria Unit), became a World Health Organization Collaborating Center for Reference and Research on Salmonella (WHO CC-Salm), a CNR for Salmonella in 1972, and a CNR for Shigella in 1977. From 1989 to 2007, Prof. P.A.D. Grimont headed the headed the Unité des Entérobactéries and then the Unité Biodiversité des Bactéries Pathogènes Emergentes (Biodiversity of Emerging Pathogenic Bacteria Unit) and since 2008, Dr. F.-X. Weill has been the head of the Unité des Bactéries Pathogènes Entériques (Enteric Bacterial Pathogens Unit).

The CNR for enterohaemorrhagic Escherichia coli, Shigella and Salmonella (CNR-ESS) is in charge of the microbiological surveillance of these three pathogens in humans in France through a network of > 1000 clinical laboratories. This centre deals with more than 10,000 isolates per year and has been working in very close collaboration with the epidemiologists on the detection and investigation of outbreaks using a wide range of molecular tools (from pulsed field gel electrophoresis to whole genome sequencing). In 2008, it was estimated that the CNR-ESS surveillance system detected 66% of laboratory-confirmed human Salmonella infections.

Beyond routine activities in surveillance and outbreak investigations, the applied research activities of the CNR is in accordance with the terms of reference issued by the Ministry of Health for the current mandate.

  •  Development of new typing and subtyping tools with the long-term goal of replacing serotyping or subtyping by sequence-based typing methods based on MLST, CRISPR or single-nucleotide polymorphisms,
  • Identification, characterization and dynamics of transmission of antibiotic-resistant bacterial populations, like the highly-drug resistant enterica serotype Kentucky ST198 strain which spread globally, or detection of any new emergent mechanisms of antibiotic resistance
  • Collaboration with biostatisticians for developing new Salmonella surveillance modelisation tools.
