May 23, 2023 Le CIRI est représenté, ces mardi 23 et mercredi 24 mai 2023, au meeting du Réseau National des Hépatites virales qui se déroule à Paris.
Apr 14, 2023 CERP - Genomic information from Coronaviruses, like SARS-CoV-2, can be used to track the genetic evolution of the virus and study the correlation of new variants with the emergence of epidemiological waves. We developed a simple Machine Learning algorithm to define emerging variants in terms of clusters, based only on the spike protein information.

Apr 04, 2023 The planned appointment date will be halfway of 2022-2026, in order to prepare the candidate to take over the management of the Institute starting on 1st January 2027 for a first five-year term. The date of integration into the Institute, ideally mid-2024, should allow a strong involvement in the establishment of the preparation of the CIRI next term project and a transition period with the present Director, François-Loïc Cosset.

Understanding infectious diseases to better control them

The Centre International de Recherche en Infectiologie (CIRI) is a joint research unit of the Lyon 1 University, Inserm, CNRS and the ENS de Lyon in partnership with VetAgro Sup, the Institut Pasteur and the Hospices Civils de Lyon. The CIRI gathers the scientific and medical research communities with complementary disciplinary backgrounds grouped in 3 specialties working together with the objective to understand host-microbe interactions to better fight infectious diseases.
