Philippe Gilot

lnstitut de la recherche agronomique, France


Philippe Gilot obtained his Ph.D. degree in biomedical sciences (microbiology and molecular genetics) from the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Louvain in Belgium, where he worked toward the characterization of mycobacterial antigenic complexes and the development of improved immunological diagnostic tests for paratuberculosis and Crohn’s disease. During the past two decades, the focus of his research extended from the development of new molecular diagnostic and typing methods to the understanding of host adaptation and virulence mechanisms of bacterial pathogens, such as mycobacteria, listeria, Staphylococcus aureus, and extraintestinal pathogenic Escherichia coli. His current interests are focused on the relation between carbohydrate metabolism and bacterial adaptation to eukaryotic hosts during colonization and infection.
