Mathieu Coureuil

Mathieu Coureuil is group leader in the team.
MC 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.

Airway environment promote Staphylococcus aureus chronic lifestyle

11/12/2023Airway environment drives the selection of quorum sensing mutants and promote Staphylococcus aureus chronic lifestyleXiongqi Ding et al. Nat Commun 2023 Staphylococcus aureus is a predominant cause of chronic lung infections. While the airway environment is rich in highly sialylated mucins, the interaction of S. aureus with sialic acid is poorly characterized. Using S. aureus USA300 as well as clinical isolates, we ...
