Mélodie Douté:

"Exploring the interplay between chronic thrombo-inflammation and megakaryopoiesis, in
the development of microvascular lesions during vasculitis-associated glomerulonephritis"

Thesis directors: Antonino Nicoletti & Marc Clément


The Laboratory of Experimental and Molecular Immunology and Neurogenetic (INEM) in Orleans aims at recruiting a junior professor to develop original projects on the role of the microbiota in physiopathology. Application: February 15th to March 20th, 2024


Congratulations to Véronique WITKO-SARSAT who received, with Theresa PIZARRO (Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland) one of the two Woman in Science Awards 2022 from the IAIS (International Association of Inflammation Societies)

This prize, presented by Nathalie VERGNOLLE, President of the IAIS, rewards women, regardless of their nationality, who have made a significant contribution to research in the field of inflammation and who have international recognition.

This distinction is also intended to promote the visibility of women in science, this message, carried by GREMI for many years, is particularly important for future generations of researchers.

is supporting and participated in the 3rd Resolution Days


The World Congress of Inflammation WCI2022 took place in Rome (Italy), 5-8th June 2022
THANK YOU to the speakers of the symposia organized by GREMI which were a great success.

The symposium "Thromboinflammation as an emerging key actor in diseases related to covid-19" organized by Véronique WITKO-SARSAT and Xavier NOREL provided an opportunity to pinpoint the new biologic roles of platelets and megakaryocytes. The data presented by Bernard PAYRASTRE (Toulouse), Morgane BOMSEL (Paris) and Grace THOMAS (Montpellier) have clearly shown the importance of these emerging players in inflammation.

The symposium "Microbiota and inflammation: mechanisms and potential treatments" organized by Céline DERAISON and Nathalie VERGNOLLE addressed some still unexplored notions of the abundant research on the microbiota in particular the problem raised by biofilms exposed by Jean-Paul MOTTA (Toulouse) and the therapeutic advances addressed by Giovanni BARBARA (Bologna).
