The bronze medal rewards the first works consecrating researchers specializing in their field. This distinction represents an encouragement from the CNRS to pursue well-initiated and already fruitful research.
The work of the "Molecular Bases of Inflammation" team revolves around the study of the mechanisms regulating chronic inflammation and its pathophysiological consequences. We are particularly interested in the mechanisms involved in the initiation, maintenance, resolution of inflammation and the metabolic consequences associated with the presence of pathological nucleic acids. This work is of crucial importance for understanding anti-viral and anti-tumor responses and more generally for pathologies presenting chronic inflammation.
