Inflammation, chemokines and immunopathology

Research unit


The Inflammation, Chimiokines and Immunopathology laboratory is interested in the pathophysiological mechanisms of the immune system and inflammation.Three teams are thematically sharing the work and are interested respectively in the immunological deregulation at the origin of the viral resistances , the influence of the intestinal microbiota on the liver resident macrophages, and finally the autoimmunities / immunodeficiencies. The presence of clinicians in the unit allows a translational approach research, as well as its membership in IPSIT and LabEx LERMIT leads to therapeutic innovations.
