For many years our service at the Timone Hospital has collaborated with researchers including the " Natural Killer Cells and Innate Immunity" team of Eric VIVIER .
As a an internal medicine physician, I am often faced with patients who have conditions that result from immune system dysfunctions. These inflammatory or autoimmune diseases are often rare diseases whose causes and symptoms are misunderstood: lupus, myositis autoimmune diseases, immune deficiencies in adults, systemic fibrosis, etc.
Like Marseille Immunopole, our discipline is positioned at the interface of different medical specialties, but also of fundamental and translational research. For many years our service at the Timone Hospital has collaborated with researchers including the ” Natural Killer Cells and Innate Immunity” team of Eric VIVIER at CIML. Together, we have developed a laboratory at the Conception Hospital specializing in the functional exploration of these lymphocytes and rare lymphocyte populations. We are conducting studies to better understand their involvement in diseases such as Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, Immune Thrombocytopenia Purpura (ITP) or IgG4-related diseases. The laboratory has also developed a routine battery of tests to quantify and qualify the activity of NK cells, T helper cells (Th) and Innate Lymphoid Cells (ILCs), particularly in clinical trials.#clinic
Our study models help to identify new potential therapeutic targets in preclinical models of personalized medicine.

MI should enable us to accelerate discovery, enhance our treatment options and offer more innovative options to our patients through current clinical trials and those of the future.
Unique cluster in the world exclusively dedicated to basic and applied immunology, MI results from an efficient territorial game between research, industry, and the institutional stakeholders in economy and innovation.

Being primarily centred on the patient, my work combines the short-term management of the disease and the long-term of clinical research.
