Bio

 
Background Having acquired a strong expertise on receptor tyrosine kinase mediated signalling pathways and how their intracellular trafficking influence essential biological functions in cancer cell biology.
 
Interest I am now, aiming at understanding how an enteric virus, the norovirus, responsible for the majority of nonbacterial gastroenteritis, a non-enveloped, single-stranded-RNA virus influences gut homeostasis.
 
More particularly, I am characterizing the mouse norovirus (MNV)-induced autophagy in cellular models and dissecting the underlying molecular mechanisms leading to autophagy hijacking by MNV to favour its replication.
