Qu'est-ce que l'immunologie ?

What is Immunology

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.

Philippe Pierre, DR CNRS, leads, since 2000, the research team at the CIML entitled "Dendritic cell biology", in collaboration with Dr. Evelina Gatti. The team's research focuses on the cellular biology of dendritic cells and the innate detection of microbes by the immune system.

Since January 1,2018, Philippe Pierre has been in charge of the CIML, with great pleasure. Toby Lawrence, INSERM Research Director, will support him as Deputy Director for half his term.
