The Simon-Loriere Lab has been created in the Virology department of Institut Pasteur on Feb 1st, 2018, to work on RNA virus discovery, emergence, transmission, and evolution.
We use viral genomics to study evolutionary processes of RNA viruses, with a focus on arboviruses such as dengue and Zika.
We are notably interested in the large spectrum of symptoms severity that can result from a viral infection.
We combine molecular epidemiology studies thanks to amazing collaborations within the Institut Pasteur International Network and experimental work, both in vitro and in vivo.
We still work a lot with our former host unit, the Sakuntabhai lab.
