About Sorbonne University
Sorbonne Université hence becomes a fully multidisciplinary research-intensive university with three faculties: Humanities and Social Sciences, Medicine and Sciences & Engineering. With more than 53 400 students (among 10 200 international students), 4400 doctoral students and 6300 researchers, Sorbonne Universitéis a leading French university. It assists the researchers for all the administrative, financial and legal aspects of the research projects. In particular, the research officers ensure a follow up of the project results and their adequate exploitation and technology transfer.
The Sorbonne group is leading by Dr. Vincent Jarlier & Dr. Nicolas Veziris and Dr. Alexandra Aubry. The group brings to the consortium a large medical and biological expertise on mycobacteriology, including M. tuberculosis and non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) of medical importance, as well as the vision of therapeutic applications. The team focuses mainly its activity on therapeutic aspects of tuberculosis and NTM infections: (a) study of new drugs, based on microbiological technics, molecular biology, biochemistry and structural biology; (b) in vivo activity and efficiency of new therapeutic regimens using various mouse models; (c) mechanisms of resistance in clinical strains and in vitro selected mutants, based on microbiological technics, molecular biology (sequencing, WGS…) and biochemistry.
