Post-Doc position in Cellular Microbiology

 Project outline

The team works on the pathogenesis of Group B Streptococcus (GBS), a major pathogen of the neonate, being the main responsible for neonatal invasive diseases including meningitis.

Mechanistic data on how the GBS CC17 clone that is involved in 80 % of meningitis cases, accesses the central nervous system are still lacking and a holistic view of the pathophysiological process involved is still missing. Our objective is to decipher at the molecular level what confers to the GBS CC17 this high neurotropism in neonates.
