Mathieu Coureuil

Mathieu Coureuil is a senior scientist at the Necker-Enfants Malades Institute (« Chargé de Recherche », Inserm). He received his Ph.D. in Cell Biology from University Paris-Sud, France, in 2006. Since then, he studies the interaction between N. meningitidis and human endothelial cells. He demonstrated the role of the meningococcus induced endothelial cell signaling during invasion of human vessels.  His current discovery-driven research focuses on determining the molecular mechanisms involved in the endothelial cell colonization. Besides, Mathieu Coureuil developed a new thematic studying S. aureus in the context of chronic infections.
Currently, MC is interested in invasive meningococcal infections, from portal of entry to sepsis, as well as chronic S. aureus infections.

The pentose phosphate pathway in pathogenic Francisella

Le 03/08/2021 .The pentose phosphate pathway constitutes a major metabolic hub in pathogenic FrancisellaHéloise Rytter et al PLOS Pathogens 2021. Metabolic pathways are now considered as intrinsic virulence attributes of pathogenic bacteria and thus represent potential targets for antibacterial strategies. Here we focused on the role of the pentose phosphate pathway (PPP) and its connections ...
