Scientific summary

My research is dealing with the study of  the involvement of CD8 T cells and B cells in transplantation immunology, especially to decipher the immunological mechanisms leading to late chronic transplantation rejection for kidney recipients.Thanks to a close collaboration with the clinical team, we are mainly studying the immune response using biological samples retrieved from transplanted patients.

We are also interested in the analysis of the TCRVb repertoire in various immunological settings.
