OFFER DESCRIPTION

We aim at dissecting the role of human gamma-delta T cells in viral infections and our work is currently focussed on HEV (hepatitis E virus) infection. This virus is responsible for persistent and severe clinical manifestations in immunosuppressed individuals in particular after organ transplantation. This involves immune escape mechanisms which are poorly understood although they appear to target conventional, non-conventional and innate immunity, including gamma-delta T cells. The candidate will study the immunoregulatory role of these lymphocytes in this context, their functional capabilities and fine phenotypic and transcriptomic characteristics. This will rely on the availability of a unique collection of human samples from acutely and chronically HEV-infected individuals. The position is based in Toulouse (France) under the supervision of Eric Champagne.
