LPS-BIOSCIENCES is glad to welcome Tatiana KONDAKOVA, PhD, as the new Vaccine Group Leader.

She obtained her PhD in Cell Biology in the Laboratory of Microbiology Signals and Microenvironment at the University of Rouen, France (2012-2015) in collaboration with the Centre Régional d’Innovation et de Transfert Technologique (CERTAM) by working on airborne bacteria, and specializing in analysis of bacterial membrane lipids. Interested by this topic, she joined the Cronan Lab at the University of Illinois, USA (2016-2018) for studying the regulation of bacterial lipid biosynthesis, using genomics and biochemical tools. 

 

Martine Caroff, DSc, will represent LPS-BIOSCIENCES at the 12th Bordetelles International Symposium in Brussels, Belgium, from 9 to 12 April 2019, presenting with Alexey Novikov a poster titled "AN UPDATE ON THE BORDETELLAENDOTOXINS SAGA", a summary of the results of 40 years of research and our latest developments on the endotoxins of this bacterial genus to which B. pertussis and B. parapertussis, whooping cough agents, belong.
