Innate lymphoid cells in sepsis


CHUV (Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois)



Short CV

In 2016 I got my master degree in Genetics and cell biology, specialty infectiology at the University Claude Bernard in Lyon, France. Since December 2016, I am working as a PhD student under the supervision of Dr. Thierry Roger and Prof. Thierry Calandra in the laboratory of Infectious Diseases at the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois (CHUV) in Lausanne, Switzerland. I am one of the 15 students enrolled within the Horizon 2020 Marie Curie Innovative Training Network called European Sepsis Academy (ESA). My PhD project focuses on the role played by a recently discovered immune population, innate lymphoid cells (ILCs). Indeed several arguments suggest that dysregulated expression and/or functions of ILCs may play a role in sepsis pathogenesis.
