Présentation

Le département Parasites et insectes vecteurs sonde le mode de vie des parasites et leurs vecteurs. Des recherches au cœur des enjeux mondiaux de santé publique, pour lesquels prévention, contrôle et traitement restent des préoccupations permanentes.

Le département étudie trois parasites eucaryotes majeurs responsables de maladies graves et aux répercussions sanitaires et économiques importantes, qui touchent la plus grande partie du monde : Plasmodium spp, agents du paludisme, Leishmania spp, agents de la leishmaniose, et Trypanosoma spp, responsable de la maladie du sommeil. Le moustique Anopheles, vecteur des Plasmodium et des virus, est étudié, ainsi que la mouche tsé-tsé, vecteur de la maladie du sommeil. Les travaux du département associent à la recherche fondamentale – sur des modèles in vitro et in vivo, avec une importante implication sur le terrain notamment en Afrique et Asie – une recherche appliquée, par exemple sur les bases de la résistance du parasite du paludisme aux antimalariques, ainsi que l’identification de nouveaux médicaments antiparasitaires. De nouveaux modèles et outils expérimentaux sont développés pour mieux comprendre les interactions dynamiques que ces micro-organismes établissent avec leur hôte, pour décoder les bases fondamentales du parasitisme et de la transmission par les vecteurs, pour élucider les mécanismes d’invasion de l’hôte, ainsi que pour déterminer les facteurs de virulence, la pathologie et les stratégies de survie de ces divers organismes.
