Multi-host-pathogen communities


Our researches focus on the understanding of pathogen emergence in multi-hosts/multi-pathogens communities, with a special interest to their interactions with global changes (e.g., human-made perturbations of ecosystems, migrations, changes in the soil usages, etc). Aside modeling developments of pathogen emergence, we are studying the interconnections between pathogen emergence and global changes (e.g., human perturbation of ecosystems, pollution, migration, changes in land usages, etc). We are thus studying diverse biological models, including the emerging Mycobacterium ulcerans (the agent of Buruli ulcer), emerging fungal pathogens of fishes and/or the communities in pathogens which have merged in human populations in the middle ages.
