Scientific summary

I develop with my team research on virus/cell interactions on different viral models (hepatitis B and C viruses, human immunodeficiency virus, Zika virus, dengue virus, West-Nile virus, chikungunya virus, SARS-CoV-2). We have also developed the concept of an experimental bivalent vaccine against hepatitis B and hepatitis C.

I am the author or co-author of more than 170 Medline-indexed publications.

I was awarded the Drieu-Cholet Prize of the National Academy of Medicine (2014), the Jean Valade Prize of the Fondation de France (2015) and the Grand Prix of the Academy of Pharmacy (2018) for my work.

I am the author of a book for the general public entitled "Portraits of viruses: a journey to the heart of cells" (126 pages, with a preface by Christian Bréchot, Presses Universitaires François Rabelais, October 2020).

I have been elected corresponding member of the National Academy of Medicine in 2022
