My research laboratory is involved in understanding how the mucosal immune system discriminates between pathogens and commensal bacteria, with application to the design of mucosal vaccines targeting pathogens and allergy.

Blaise Corthésy lab


Our laboratory develops fundamental, translational and clinical research focused on the molecular and cellular mechanisms of immune response to microorganisms in order to develop new diagnosis strategies, prevention and treatment of infectious diseases.

Thierry Roger lab


CIG - Center for Integrative Genomics

I am interested in understanding how ecosystems of microbes evolve over time, and how they are shaped by the interactions taking place between individual microbial cells.

Andrzej Stasiak lab


DMF - Department of Fundamental Microbiology

We study how the bacterial cell cycle is temporally and spatially regulated with a particular focus on the biology of the bacterial chromosome.

Justine Collier lab


We study microbial symbiosis with a focus on gut microbiota-host interactions. Our current work is centered on honey bees and related social bee species.

Philipp Engel lab


The Keel lab investigates molecular mechanisms used by root-colonizing beneficial bacteria to protect agricultural crop plants against pest insects and fungal pathogens.

Christoph Keel lab


The Martin lab studies how spatial intracellular organization controls cell growth and division, as well as cell-cell fusion during sexual reproduction.

Sophie Martin lab


Our group is interested in understanding how ecosystems of  microbes evolve over time, and how they are shaped by the interactions taking place between individual microbial cells, strains and species.

Sara Mitri lab


We use synthetic biology approaches to develop novel biosensors to understand the regulation of signal transduction and transcription in single cells.

Serge Pelet lab


Bacteriophages and their lysins: Developing new promising antibacterial agents.

Gregory Resch lab


The fundamental goal of my research is to understand how bacteria adapt to changing environmental conditions and how we can benefit from bacterial activities.

Jan van der Meer lab


Our group applies synthetic biology tools to build gene regulatory networks. We then use them to study their mechanisms, properties and evolution.

Yolanda Schearli lab


The Veening lab uses systems and synthetic biology approaches to study chromosome segregation, mechanisms of antibiotic resistance development, and noise in gene expression in the important opportunistic human pathogen Streptococcus pneumoniae.

Jan-Willem Veening lab


Structural maintenances of chromosomes: We use the powerful genetics, biochemistry and cell biology of bacterial model organisms to elucidate conserved mechanisms of long-range chromosome organization and genome maintenance.

Stephan Gruber lab

IMUL - Institute of Microbiology

Molecular epidemiology of nosocomial infections.

Dominique Blanc lab


Our lab aims at better understanding HIV life cycle and its interactions with the human cell, in order to identify novel strategies to eradicate HIV as well as to develop new tools for gene therapy and lab applications.

Angela Ciuffi lab


Mechanisms of the C. albicans pathogenic fungus adaptation to its host(s) during the course of infection.

Alix Coste lab


Molecular virology and pathogenesis of hepatitis C and E.

Jérôme Gouttenoire


Genomics of Pneumocystis jirovecii, a fungus causing pneumonia in immuno-compromised humans.

Philippe Hauser lab


Our research investigates the interaction of emerging human pathogenic viruses with the host cell with the goal to develop novel strategies for anti-viral therapeutic intervention.

Stefan Kunz lab


Use of viral vectors and bacteria in immunotherapeutic strategies against uro-genital cancers.

Denise Nardelli lab


My laboratory is involved in the understanding of molecular mechanisms of resistance to antifungal drugs in fungal pathogens, including Candida albicans and Candida glabrata. The impact of these mechanisms in fungal virulence and fitess is also investigated.
