RESEARCH – EXPERTISE AREA :
After a master degree in biology with a specialty in parasitology, I did a PhD (defended in 2005) on host-pathogen interactions using penaeid shrimp/vibrio (Vibrio penaeicida-Litopenaeus stylirostris) as model. These works were pursued as a scientific consultant (SkuldTech Company) until filing a patent on the use of immune related genes (level of expression) as indicators of shrimp survival capacities to vibriosis. After a post-doctoral, on the adaptation of fish to variations of salinity (Dicentrarchus labrax), I was recruited by Ifremer in 2006. Since, I mainly geared toward the study of host-pathogen-environment interactions in the context of massive and recurrent mortalities affecting the Pacific oyster (Crasostrea gigas). These works have identified some transcriptomic and genetic factors in oysters, associated to an effective versus ineffective immune response in controlled experimental conditions and in in situ conditions. In order to advance the understanding of these multifactorial diseases and define the relative weight of each factor in the pathogenesis, we currently undertake a dynamic and integrative study of the oyster as a meta-organism (the oyster together with its associated microflora, ANR DECIPHER 2015-2018).
