Vulnerability and ageing of the immune system
About Jonathan Visentin
I am a researcher of the Déchanet-Merville’s group involved in projects that focus on transplanted patients. I am also involved in teaching Immunology to students in the Medicine department of the University of Bordeaux and have a clinical activity at the Immunology and Immunogenetics Laboratory of Bordeaux’s University Hospital.
My research / PhD / Post-doc / projects
The main project I am supervising aims to better understand graft rejection due to donor specific anti-HLA antibodies (DSA) which are produced by transplanted recipients. After the transplantation, a non-negligible part of the recipients develop those DSA, which are detected by different assays on the routine practice. Our work focuses mainly on the development of new methods which better characterize DSA properties and could improve the clinical management of recipients.
