Vulnerability and ageing of the immune system
About Julien Goret
I am a researcher of the Déchanet-Merville’s group involved in projects that focus on host-pathogen interaction and immune defenses against infectious diseases particularly in sepsis. I am also involved in teaching Immunology to students in the Medicine department of the University of Bordeaux and have a clinical activity focused on allergy at the Immunology Laboratory of Bordeaux’s University Hospital.
My research / PhD / Post-doc / projects
Sepsis a major cause of death worldwide and is defined by a dysregulated immune response to bacterial infection. Sepsis results notably in increased neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) formation, which increases the severity of the insult and risk of mortality. Both innate immunity and inflammation are implicated in NETosis initiation and regulation. We want to define biomarkers in order to predict clinical outcomes and target NETosis during sepsis.
