Scientific summary

Julien Marie hold is PhD in Immuno-virology  from Ecole Normale Superieure of Lyon in 2002. After working on the immunosupression induced by Measles virus ( Immunity 2000, Nature Immunology 2002), Julien Marie obtained a Human Frontier Science Program fellowship and  joined the Rudensky lab in Seattle USA. There, he focused  his ivestigations on the  effects of Transforming Growth Factor beta (TGF-ß) on T lymphocyte biology and their consequences on autoimmune diseases (Immunity 2006, J.exp med 2005). Back to France,  using  different approaches, ranging from in vivo to gene regulation  levels,  his lab demonstrated that TGF-beta control the developpment and functions of key T cells subsets including NKT ( J. Exp. Med. 2009, Blood 2012,) TFH cells ( J. Clin. Invest. 2014), CD8 effector and memory  T cells,  ( Immunity 2012, Nature Com. 2014, Nature Immunology 2020 J clin invest 2022), Treg (immunity 2015 Nature Immunol 2020, Nature com 2021, Nature 2022) and thymic selection  (Nature Com 2019) with  consequences on autoimmune disease and infections. His lab research  is also focused on the regulation of the  T cell response in cancers (Cancer resarch 2020, Nature com 2020) and in  cancer associated inflammation in the intestine (Nature Immunology). Dr Marie was awarded of numerous prizes including the  Jules Courmont academy of science (2007, Lyon), fondation Bettencourt-Schuller Prize (2011 Paris)  the French Society of immunology (2010 Paris ) The  European I award sanofi (2019), the  Descroix Vernier Bioethics prize (2022, Paris)
