Membrane and Pathogens Group (Franck Fieschi)

The group studies membrane proteins, related to host-pathogen interactions, infection mechanisms and the immune responses. To this end, in parallel to the biological systems studied, we also develop new tools (surfactants) and expertise in biochemistry and biophysics of membrane proteins (SANS, AUC). The group is composed of two teams of biochemists with complementary expertise at the interface with chemistry, physics, and cell biology.
