Lymphocyte Physiology

Jocelyne Demengeot

The research group, led by Jocelyne Demengeot, is concerned with those properties of the immune system that guarantee tissue integrity as well as tolerance to commensals and food antigens while maintaining the ability to mount efficient responses to infectious agents and some tumours. Rooted in this thematic is also the biological puzzle of phenotypic heterogeneity, the challenge of personalised medicine.

The research group approach the cellular and molecular bases of immune regulation through the analysis of various mouse models, notably of spontaneous or induced autoimmune and immuno-pathological inflammation.

Closer to the clinic, they interrogate the biological basis of the most extreme manifestations in autoimmune diseases and of the variable efficacy of immunotherapies.
