This proposal is aimed at promoting the collaboration of two European research teams (the team of Dr. B. Gicquel at the Institut Pasteur of Paris, as the Host Institution and Prof. P. Ricciardi-Castagnoli from the University of Milano-Bicocca) in the emerging field of immunogenomics applied to research in the area of immunity to infections with a particular focus on tuberculosis.
The availability of a M.Curie Chair will unable the promotion and the diffusion of a new approach in the studies of host-parasite interaction; this approach will be based on functional genomic technologies to reveal, at a global scale, the induced differential expression of genes occurring in the host and in the pathogen during their interaction.
The two leading expertises will cross-fertilize this interdisciplinary approach for the benefit of the scientific community and the training of many early stage researchers. In addition a new PhD programme will be launched in order to expose European students to new cutting edge I.D.E.A.
