Human T-lymphotropic virus type 1 (HTLV-1) is a human retrovirus that causes leukemia / lymphoma in a subset of infected individuals. My research activity focuses on the molecular mechanisms leading to HTLV-1-induced cell transformation. I study the properties of two viral proteins, Tax and the antisens protein. I investigate how interactions of these viral proteins with cellular partners affect essential cellular pathways such as signaling (with a special focus on NF-kB and IRF3/7 signaling pathways), cell-cycle checkpoints and gene expression.
As an Assistant Professor, I am involved in teaching at the ENS. I mainly teach Virology and Immunology to Licence 3, Master 1 and Agrégation students.
