French Parasitology Alliance For Health Care


Dr Mohamed Ali-Hakimi, a LabEx ParaFrap partner, is the laureate for the National Junior Awards of the 2015 Sanofi - Institut Pasteur Awards.

He is distinguished for his research on the functioning of the parasite responsible for toxoplasmosis. An Awards Ceremony took place on Wednesday, November 4th of 2015 at the Pasteur Institute in Paris.

The Proteomics and modified peptide platform was inaugurated on April 17th 2014.

It's a new tool for the LabEx ParaFrap community, Pasteur Institute of Lille and to national and international academic and private laboratories. With this platform, parasitologists of the LabEx ParaFrap community can improve proteome studies and understand the complex relationships between proteins in parasites and those of the infected patients .

Stéphanie Blandin, ParaFrap Member, "Chargée de recherche" at Inserm Unit 963 (Immune Response and Insect Development - Postgenomic Analysis of Anopheles Antigens) in the Institute of Molecular and Cellular Biologyof Strasbourg was awarded the Young Investigator's Sanofi-Institut Pasteur Prize for outstanding research on mosquito resistance to malaria.

Her research focuses on malaria, an infectious disease that causes nearly one million deaths each year in the world. Means of control exist: antimalarial drugs and control of the mosquitoes vectors of the parasite Plasmodium. But for several years, parasites are increasingly resistant to drugs, and mosquitoes develop resistance to insecticides. Stéphanie Blandin is working on the immune response of the mosquito Anopheles to these parasites. S. Blandin seeks to understand the genetic factors responsible for the resistance of mosquitoes to parasite infection, to develop new strategies that will limit transmission to humans in endemic areas.

This award was presented to her on November 13, 2012 in Paris. Click here
