Center for Immunology and Microbial Infections
MRSU 1135 - CIMI
Unité mixte de recherche en santé
The Center for Immunology and Infectious Diseases (Cimi) is a joint research unit created in 2014 and affiliated with Sorbonne University, Inserm and CNRS. The Cimi is located on the campus of the Faculty of Medicine of Sorbonne University on the site of Pitié-Salpêtrière in Paris.
This location creates a strong dynamic of exchanges between research teams and hospital services. About 150 people work at Cimi, including researchers, teachers, technical staff and research support.
Research at Cimi explores the functions of the immune system and host-pathogen interactions, and seeks to develop new therapeutic strategies in the field of immunology and infectious diseases.
Topics: immunology, inflammation, immuno-oncology, microbiology, host-pathogen interactions, antibiotic resistance, vaccinology.
