Our work mainly focuses on cellular and molecular aspects

of HIV replication,

and on the interplay between viruses and the host

The HIV/AIDS epidemic represents more than ever a public health threat worldwide. About 35 million people are living with HIV/AIDS as of the end of 2014, most of them originating from emerging countries. Our work focuses on cellular and molecular aspects of HIV-1 replication, and on the mechanisms of recognition of HIV-infected cells by the immune system. Three close and complementary axes of research characterize our scientific activities.

  • the impact of HIV-1 infection on the biology of T cells
  • the mechanisms of cell-to-cell viral spread
  • the interplay between viruses and the immune system.

We are also investigating the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying the replication of Chikungunya virus.
