Amandine Guérin and Lauriane Sollelis, PhD students of ParaFrap, were awarded the best poster prize for their work presented at the "2015 (26th) Annual Molecular Parasitology Meeting" (Woods Hole, USA). Two out of the six laureates, among 150 posters, are from our LabEx. Congratulations !!

Find out more about these posters, visit the MPM2015 conference website (see "2015 abstract book").

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 .
