After a century of use and abuse of antibiotics, the world is facing antibiotic-resistant bacterial pathogens. In this context, we collectively seek to understand bacterial infections and to identify new ways to fight these infections. Areas of research include the study of virulence factors, the transfer  of genetic elements among bacteria, innate immunity to bacterial infections, the study of clinical strains in relation with the patients and the clinical phenotypes.

The main bacterial pathogens studied are Staphylococcus aureus, Legionella pneumophila, Acinetobacter baumanii, Salmonella typhimurium, Adherent-Invasive Escherichia coli, Francisella tularensis
