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

Structure, function and evolution of chemosensory systems.

Richard Benton lab

Our research aims at understanding, through genomic approaches, how the interplay between various transcription factors and the corresponding regulatory networks, controls metabolic homeostasis in physiological and pathological conditions. The liver and white adipose tissue (WAT), which are important organs with respect to energy balance, are the main targets of our studies.

Béatrice Desvergne lab

Molecular mechanisms of light-regulated growth and development in plants.

Christian Fankhauser lab

Our group explores the molecular mechanisms and physiological functions of biological timekeeping by circadian clocks in mammals.

David Gatfield lab

Size and shape regulation during development in Drosophila.

Fisun Hamaratoglu lab

Regulation of gene transcription in the control of mammalian cell proliferation and differentiation.

What are the mechanisms that plants use to detect when they are wounded by herbivores?

Ted Farmer lab

Geldner.jpg

We want to understand establishment, structure and function of the endodermis, a major protective barrier in the root of higher plants.

Niko Geldner lab

Poirier.jpg

Study plant phosphate homeostasis and how plants respond and adapt to phosphate deficiency.

Yves Poirier lab

Hardtke.jpg

The phloem vasculature enabled plants to colonize land and is formed in a peculiar differentiation process, the formation of conductive sieve elements by selective degradation of organelles. Our research investigates this process.

Christian Hardtke lab

Cuellar.png

We are interested in understanding the communication systems that plants have developed to read their cell wall status to coordinate growth and development.

Julia Santiago Cuellar lab

DMF - Department of Fundamental Microbiology
Keel.jpg

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

Martin.jpg

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

Pelet.jpg

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

Serge Pelet lab

Yolanda_Schearli.jpg

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

Venning.jpg

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

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

Alix Coste lab - Institute of Microbiology
