About the Unit

The laboratory of Molecular Virology and Immunology (VIM-UR892) studies pathogens affecting farm animals.

Our research activities range from the molecular characterization of pathogens to host-defense mechanisms.

We are mainly interested in respiratory viruses in mammals and birds, fish viruses and bacteria, and non-conventional agents such as prions.

We study host-pathogen interactions in target species (swine, cattle, sheep, trout) or model species (mice, zebra fish).

Scientific issues:
1) Structure and expression of pathogen genomes
2) Structure-function relationships of macro-molecular complexes
3) Virulence-pathogenicity factors and escape from host defenses
4) Plasticity of host responses during evolution and development
5) Fighting strategies: vaccination and therapeutical approaches

The laboratory is organised around three main fields of interest:

  • Animal respiratory viruses: host-virus interactions, immunity
  • Prions
  • Fish infectiology

The laboratory also hosts the editorial team of the open access journal Veterinary Research.
