Louis Lambrechts, after his training in biology at the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris, France. He obtained a Ph.D. degree in ecology in 2006 at University Pierre & Marie Curie (Paris 6). His Ph.D. research dealt with the ecology and evolution of interactions between anopheline mosquitoes and malaria parasites. He then spent three years as a European Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of California in Davis, USA and in the Laboratory of Genetics and Evolution of Infectious Diseases (IRD-CNRS) in Montpellier, France. During his postdoc, he studied the interactions between Aedes aegypti mosquitoes and dengue viruses using various approaches of quantitative and evolutionary genetics. In 2010, he founded his own group at Institut Pasteur in Paris. In 2011, he was appointed to a Faculty Research Scientist position at CNRS in the Insects and Infectious Diseases Unit of Institut Pasteur. He is currently involved in several international research programs on dengue and vector-virus interactions.
