Tribute to Michel PIERRES
Michel PIERRES, a world-renowned physician and immunologist, died on June 14, 2019
One of the first team leaders of the CIML, Michel Pierres was director of the centre from 1991 to 1995. His work on the characterization of molecules associated with T lymphocyte activation using monoclonal antibodies helped to position the Centre d’Immunologie de Marseille-Luminy (CIML) on the map of global immunology during the 1980s to 2000s..
Michel Pierres will be remembered for his sense of ethics, methodological rigor, incomparable energy, generosity towards fellow researchers around the world and his profound scientific and general culture (literary and musical in particular). He was a colleague and friend highly esteemed by his peers.

At the crossroads of biology and medicine, immunology is a scientific discipline that focuses on the operating mechanisms of the immune system. Appeared early in the evolution, this system enables living organisms to defend themselves against pathogens or their own components when they are altered. It involves a large number of cells whose capacity for cooperation, recognition and memory are far from having revealed all their secrets.
