LJP at a glance

LJP research activities consist in Physics at the interface of with Biology and Medicine. We develop new experimental approaches to probe complex biological systems at different scales, and we develop bio-inspired systems to develop new concepts or to improve our understanding of given biological mechanisms. A large part of our research aims at exploring the response of a biological system to external perturbations. Finally, the LJP includes a theoretical component closely interacting with experimenters.

Constraining the immune system dynamics with a coevolving population: the HIV, flu and microbiome cases
By Andrea Mazzolini (LPENS)
December 5, 2023 at 11:00AM - salle de séminaires 5ème étage - LJP - Tour 32-33
The adaptive immune system is an extremely complex machinery that continuously evolves to recognize and fight external pathogens. This chase is often made harder by the fact that pathogens also evolve...
