Stephane Basmaciogullari received his Engineering degree in agronomy in Nancy, France, in 1995, and his Ph.D. degree in immunology at Paris XI University, Villejuif, France, in 2000. The aim of his work was the characterization of the secretory protein gp17/SABP/GCDFP-15, a ligand of the CD4 protein expressed at the plasma membrane of helper T-cells and cells of the myeolid lineage. From 2000 to 2005, he was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the J. Sodroski laboratory at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston, USA, where the aim of his work was the analysis of HIV-1 entry into target cells and the functional assembly of the fusion complex (Env/CD4/coreceptors). Since April 2005, he has been a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Institut Cochin, Paris, France, and then a Principal Investigator at the Institut Necker, Paris, France, where the aim of his work was the investigation of the role of Nef in HIV-1 infectivity. His expertise in the HIV-1 field focussed on envelope/receptors and coreceptors/fusion and entry/auxiliary proteins, Nef in particular.
