Bioinformatics and digital tools designed for health products
Dr. Christophe d’Enfert is an Associate Professor at Institut Pasteur, Paris, France where he is the Head of the Fungal Biology and Pathogenicity Unit and the Vice-Chair of the Genomes and Genetics Department. Dr. d’Enfert gained his PhD at Institut Pasteur working on protein secretion in Gram-negative bacteria. During his post-doctoral training at the University of California at Berkeley, he studied protein secretion in yeast with Nobel Prize laureate Randy Scheckman. Since 1992, he joined Institut Pasteur to study human pathogenic fungi and has developed both fundamental and applied research on two major fungal pathogens, Candida albicans and Aspergillus fumigatus. Current research in his laboratory focuses on the development of tools for functional genomics of C. albicans and the study of C. albicans genome dynamics and diversity, biofilm formation and morphogenesis.
Dr. d’Enfert is also a Visiting Professor at Ecole Polytechnique in France and the Chief Scientific Officer of the French Technological Research Institute BIOASTER.
Dr Alain Viari
Alain Viari graduated from University Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris VI) and holds a PhD in Biophysics. From 1988 to 1999 he worked as a CNRS researcher at Institut Curie (Physics department) and University Paris VI (Atelier de Bioinformatique). He moved to INRIA in 2000 and was successively at the head of a bioinformatics research team (Helix) and Scientific Delegate of the Grenoble-Rhône-Alpes research center. Since 2012 he has been appointed as Seputy Scientific Director at INRIA in charge of ICST for Life and Environmental Sciences. His research activities focus on the development of string and graph algorithms for genomics and proteomics. More recently he grew a new interest for ecology and evolutionary study of infectious diseases.
