Dr Pierre BRUHNS has performed his PhD in Immunology at Institut Curie (Paris, France) and his post-doc at the Rockefeller University (New York, USA). He obtained his tenure at Institut Pasteur in 2004 and directs the Unit of Antibodies in Therapy and Pathology, INSERM Unit 1222 in the department of Immunology at the Institut Pasteur (Paris, France). Dr Bruhns authored 56 publications, obtained multiple national grants and an ERC Consolidator grant. This laboratory is a leading laboratory on antibody receptor biology and is internationally recognized for its work on the in vivo roles of IgG antibodies, in disease and therapy models. The laboratory develops experimental “humanized” mouse models of antibody-induced pathologies, clinical studies on severe allergy and technological solutions to analyse antibody-producing cells at the single cell level (affinity, repertoire) using droplet microfluidics, for discovery of fundamental immunological mechanisms, and diagnostic and therapeutic antibodies.
