Our team works at the interface of microbiology, immunology and cell biology. We aim at deciphering the role of oxygen in host-pathogen interactions, using the enteropathogen Shigella flexneri as a model and focusing on the neutrophil-mediated immune response. This question will be address at the different steps of the infectious process from epithelial cell invasion to the formation of foci of infection and to the dissemination within tissues.
