INEM Orleans has a track record of >400 publications analyzing mechanisms of inflammation underlying many diseases. Danger signals released following different cell stress, damage or infection activating DNA/RNA dependent cGAS/STING and inflammasome pathways are of special recent interest at INEM. We investigate disease pathways using both state of the art murine models of human diseases and human cohort studies. With already 22 collaborative publications and 3 ANR projects in microbiota and inflammation, we welcome the opportunity to reinforce this research aspect with a new dedicated team.
