 Who am I ? ► link to a short CV

I am a third year Phd student under the direction of Dr. Julie Dechanet Merville.

> My PhD Project
The team in which I work on my thesis has shown that gd T cells are activated during the infection with cytomegalovirus cmv. A virus that passes mostly unnoticed in healthy subjects but has serious consequences in the transplanted patient. This virus has developed many  mechanisms to escape conventional ab T cells  by inhibiting HLA molecules. My project consists in determining whether these escape mechanisms also affects gd T cells. For this purpose, I am studying the effect of CMV escape proteins on the expression of various forms of HLA and the consequences of this modulation on the activation of gd T cells.
