About

My actual research field covers the screening of environmental sources/reservoirs of Mycobacterium ulcerans (MU; Buruli ulcer etiological agent) using advanced molecular tools ; and the study of the transmission mode of this microbial agent from the contaminated environment to human. Here, I use experimental tools including different living organisms to investigate the mystery that is hidden behind the mode of contamination of MU.
