What's up ?
03.2023. New paper out !

So glad that our review about intracellular antibiotic persisters has been accepted for publication !


03.2023. Be a PERSISTer! Apply to the E2M2 PhD program and join us!

We are looking for a young researcher who would be motivated to apply for a competitive doctoral contract and to reinforce our dynamic young team. Together, we will contribute to the ongoing pradigm change in infection biology. Using single-cell approaches, our group aim at understanding the pathogen phenotypic heterogeneity and its role in the infection process and the therapeutic failures. 

If you are interested in such challenge, please contact Nicolas Personnic ( and/or Didier Blaha ( Once the lab endorsment obtained, you will be supported to prepare and submit the research project and the grand oral.

03.2023. We got it !!

Our joint project with Pr. Raju Mukherjee (IISER Tirupati, India) has been selected in the frame of the Biosantexc program that aim at creating a franco-indian research campus. We are now looking forward to welcoming Mrs. Souparnika Sabu and a fruitfull collaboration with Raju !


12.2022. On the move !

We finally moved to our new labs in Gerland ! 


10.2022. Warm welcome to our new labmate!

Charline Decarvalho joins the lab to complete her university training as research technician.


10. 2022. We got it !!

Our project “BETinCAP”, coordinated by Olaya Rendueles Garcia from the Pasteur Institute, got funded by ANR! This marks the starts of a new and exciting collaboration with Olaya! We will study the metabolism, virulence and gene exchanges in Klebsiella spp. at the single-cell level. This project will leverage molecular microbiology, genetics, comparative genomics and infection models to tackle how changes at the single-cell level are regulated and may influence a population, its ability to cause disease, resist to antibiotics and to adapt to the environment, and thus to determine its consequences at the microevolutionary level.


09.2022. Moving on the move

By the end of that year, our lab moves into a new research building at the core of the new Biodistrict of Lyon where world leaders in life-sciences gather !

At walking distance, we will access all technological facilties !


07.2022. Congratulations !

Iris Dadole successfully secured a competitive doctoral contract to prepare her PhD thesis in the lab !

Congratulations Iris !!!!!
