Our 4 major objectives :

1. To study intestinal, vaginal, pulmonary and skin ecosystem, in order to identify benefic effect on host and their mechanism of action

2. To explore immune and physiologic responses to commensals and probiotics in different nutriotional contexts

3. To study the interaction between host and intestinal microbiota through diet and supplement with prebiotics and/or symbiotics

4. To integrate our work to physiology (birh and aging) and human physio-pathology (inflammation, cancer and obesity) in order to tend toward translational research and to propose notably strategies of prevention and therapy 


Our team is composed to 48 members et organised in 4 complementary groups:

* Probiotiques, commensales et inflammation (Head: L. Bermudez-Humaran);

* Immuno-modulation de l'hôte (Head: JM Chatel) ;

* Immunity and intestinal microbiota (head: H. Sokol) ;

* Microbiote et santé digestive et pulmonaire (Head: M. Thomas)


* Atelier de bactéries commensales et probiotiques (Head : R. Martin Rosique)

* Atelier de bactéries recombinantes (Head : Luis Bermudez-Humaran)
