To understand host-virus relationships during viral infections (retroviruses, arboviruses, zoonoses) in mammals (humans, animals) and in insects by developing pathophysiological, cellular and molecular approaches. In addition and based on our expertise on lung pathology, rare lung diseases are studied. Our programs are developed in collaboration with clinicians and veterinarians (One Health), in a context of comparative pathology. In parallel, the unit develops molecular and cellular tools (organoïds, 3D cultures) as well as strategies to fight against these viruses or pathologies.
