The team studies the expression of factors of virulence from various bacterial species responsible for human infectious pathologies. In our team project, bacteria are used like models for specifically investigating two major mechanisms of virulence: the toxin adhesion and secretion.
Various methodologies used are shared; they are the transcriptomic, proteomic analyses of imageries and epidemiologic analyses of clinical stocks. Beside the traditional methods, new strategies for obtaining tools such as antibodies (patent deposited) are also developed, mutants (in progress).
The objective of the team is to improve knowledge on the pathogenicity of micro-organisms targeted, in dealing with human infectious diseases.
