Hervé Lécuyer

Hervé Lécuyer is an associate professor (MCU-PH) at the University of Paris working in the Clinical Microbiology lab of the Hôpital Necker Enfants Malades and in the Research Team 7 of the Institut Necker Enfants Malades. He obtained his PhD in 2011 and worked for several years on Neisseria meningitis interaction with human endothelial cells. He works now on the pathogenesis of Neisseria meningitis to understand the discrepancies between invasive and non invasive isolates.
