Diagnostic and Therapeutic Innovations

This team is involved in three major domains

Innovative diagnostic approaches

  • To develop new technical approaches to address the current analytical barriers (flexibility, multiplexing, assays based on T cell analysis, duration and cost).
  • To develop molecular or immunological tools that can be combined with automated platforms or, on the contrary, with easy-to-handle rapid and portable tests according to the targeted needs.

New approaches and tests for low and middle income (LMI) countries

  • To develop diagnosis assays adapted to LMI countries
  • To scaling up testing in field and decentralized environments
  • To provide data about HIV, viral hepatitis, TB and others infectious diseases in LMI countries

Prevention of the transmission of infectious agents (vertical , sexual , transfusional transmisions , IV drugs & other parenteral ways)

  • To improve the development of more flexible innovative diagnostic strategies to face known and emerging infectious and immunological risks for improving blood safety.
  • To develop diagnostic strategies for future personalized medicine in the context of the prevention of chronic infections.

Chantal Fournier

Scientific supervisor

Chantal FOURNIER-WIRTH obtained a PhD Degree in Life Sciences, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Montpellier (France) in 1999. She started her career as a researcher at the EFS (Etablissement Fran├žais du Sang) in the team directed by Dr Joliette Coste in Montpellier. The team has merged with clinicians in 2015 in a mixed research unit dedicated to the pathogenesis and control of chronic infections. She is now involved in the development and the coordination of multidisciplinary projects on diagnostic innovations.
