     Hélène Dutartre

     Team co-leader        helene.dutartre[at]ens-lyon.fr

 




I am an INSERM researcher since 2005 and working at the CIRI since 2012. I am co-leading the team with Chloé since 2021. Having a formation in immunology and a multidisciplinary experience (in molecular virology, crystallography, drug design and vaccinology), I am interested in all the aspects of the interaction between viruses and their host: the infection of innate immune cells, viral mechanisms inducing the alteration of their functions, and how viral infections can be blocked. In the projects I am supervising, we use primary human cells, and we perform a multidisciplinary approach combining virology, immunology and screening of chemical compounds library to identify antiviral drugs.

 



 

     Chloé Journo

     Team co-leader        chloe.journo[at]ens-lyon.fr

  

 


I have been an Associate Professor at ENS de Lyon since 2012, and I am co-leading the team with Hélène since 2021. I am fascinated by the molecular mechanisms with which viruses reprogram the host cells' functions. The projects that I lead in the team are at the interface between the fields of virology and of cancer cell biology. Teaching is a passion, and I love to pass on the taste for virology and immunology to students and younger colleagues.

     Auriane Carcone

     PhD student        auriane.carcone[at]ens-lyon.fr

  




I am a PhD student in the Retroviral Oncogenesis Team since September 2019, after graduating from a M.Sc. in Biosciences from the ENS de Lyon and M.Sc. in Bioengineering from EPFL. Under the supervision of Dr. Hélène Dutartre, I am working on the phenotypical alterations in dendritic cells after exposure to HTLV-1 virus. I developed this strong interest for the study of host-pathogen interactions during my education and previous internships, and my PhD thesis allows me today to concretize it.

Beside my research activities, I am also teaching in the biology school in ENS de Lyon, mostly in virology and immunology classes in 1st year Master and 3rd year Bachelor. My teaching and tutoring activities are for me an important component of my PhD and allow me to share my passion for infectiology with my students.

 



 

     Janelle Gauthier

     PhD student        janelle.gauthier[at]ens-lyon.fr

  




I have been a PhD student in the team since 2020, working on the centrosomal aberrations induced by the oncoprotein Tax of HTLV-1 during the viro-induced oncogenesis.
On top of my research activities, I am also a teacher at the biology department of the ENS de Lyon, where I mostly teach cellular biology and immunology.

 



 

     KARIM ABDELMOUMEN

     Resident physician and Master 2 student        karim.abdelmoumen[at]ens-lyon.fr

  

 


Jeune médecin spécialisé en médecine interne, je porte un intérêt tout particulier pour l'hématologie et les pathologies infectieuses et tropicales. L'HTLV est le virus par excellence pour relier ces spécialités. Le monde de la recherche est une merveilleuse découverte, dans un environnement de travail sincèrement incroyable, malgré le contexte sanitaire. Je m'intéresse aussi au partage et à la vulgarisation du savoir scientifique, tant médical que "fondamental". C'est un point commun que nous partageons dans l'équipe où l'entraide est de mise.

 



 

     Julien Beltramini

     Master 2 student        julien.beltramini[at]ens-lyon.fr

  




Trainee in integrative pathophysiology specializing in oncology and infectiology at "Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes", I obviously found my place in this team by working on the mechanisms of alterations of the functions of the centrosome induced by the Tax protein of the virus HTLV-1.

 



 

     Samuel Martial

     Master 2 student        samuel.martial[at]ens-lyon.fr

  

 


Actuellement étudiant en Master 2 Physiopathologies Intégratives, je souhaite depuis deux ans approfondir mes connaissances en virologie et en cancérologie. C’est pourquoi je réalise un stage depuis septembre 2019 au sein de l’équipe Oncogenèse Rétrovirale. Initialement, mon travail était axé sur le criblage d’une chimiothèque afin de trouver des inhibiteurs de la transmission virale d’HTLV-1. A présent, certains candidats font l’objet d’une étude plus poussée, notamment pour connaitre plus spécifiquement leurs fonctionnements.

 


 

 

     Maria JoÃo Sousa

     Master 2, ERASMUS+ student        maria.tavares_sousa[at]ens-lyon.fr

  




My education started in 2016, when I joined the Integrated Master in Bioengineering, at the University of Porto (FEUP and ICBAS). My studies were focused on biotechnology from the perspective of molecular engineering and regenerative medicine. Since 2020, through the ERASMUS+ programme, I have the opportunity to be part of this team and to work on the viral transmission of HTLV-1, more specifically on the characterization and importance of the retroviral biofilm.
