FROM WHOLE ANIMALS TO PHYSICS AND MATHEMATICS

LPHI is a French Unité Mixte de Recherche CNRS (UMR 5294) – INSERM (UA 15) – Université de Montpellier, dedicated to the study of infectious processes and host immune response.

Research at LPHI aims at gaining a deeper understanding of how microbial pathogens develop and interact with their host, in order to identify new potential targets for therapeutics. Our research ranges from the in vitro study of basic biological processes to the global analysis of field samples and the mathematical modelling of cellular interactions. For this purpose, we use cutting-edge imaging techniques and alternative animal models like the zebrafish to investigate host-pathogen interactions and follow the establishment of the immune response in the context of bacterial or parasitic infections.

The LPHI is involved in several local, national and international networks like the University of Montpellier BioHealth Department, the Eurobiomed competitiveness cluster, the Infectiopôle Sud Foundation, the Parafrap Laboratory of Excellence, the FHU-TIE (Fédération Hospitalo-Universitaire -Triangulation between the host, Infectious agents and the Environment) or the INFLANET European Training Network.
