Ludovic Deriano

Lymphocyte Development & Oncogenesis Lab, Immunology Department, Institut Pasteur. Paris, France

Ludovic Deriano, from the Institut Pasteur in Paris, France, aims to understand the mechanisms by which a lymphoid cell maintains the integrity of its DNA and prevents genomic instability and transformation. More precisely, he studies the DNA recombination processes that are part of B- and T-cell development and the mechanisms and pathways that lead to lymphoid cancers. He has been invited by José Yélamos (IMIM).
