Meet Pascale Cossart, plenary speaker and FEMS-Lwoff Awardee at FEMS2019
Pascale Cossart studied chemistry in Lille and in Washington, DC. She prepared her PhD at the Institut Pasteur in Paris where she is still now, heading the « Bacteria-Cell Interactions »unit. After studying DNA-protein interactions, she started in 1986, to investigate the molecular and cellular basis of infections by intracellular bacteria taking as model the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes. Her research has led to new concepts in infection biology, in cell biology and in fundamental microbiology, including RNA regulation.
