Research Interests

I’m a molecular microbiologist, using different approaches including structural biology to study the intimacy of bacterial virulence factors and their implication in human health.

​I have been working for 20 years in the field of bacterial secretion systems. I love to decipher their molecular architecture, how all the pieces are put together to make these beautiful nanomachines work efficiently. My ultimate goal is to transform the molecular knowledge derived from our research to find ways to block these virulence factors by developing “grains of sand” to block the nanomachine engine. Theses molecules or peptides are promising therapeutic options to fight bacterial infections in the context of antibiotic resistance.
