Fellay Lab - Human Genomics of Infection and Immunity
We use large-scale genomics and bioinformatics to explore the impact of genetic variation on immune parameters and host-pathogen interactions. Our ambition is to shed new light on basic biological mechanisms and to pave the way toward more personalized approaches to medicine.
At the crossroad between basic science and the clinical world, we are committed to translational genomic research, aiming at identifying, validating, and bringing to clinical use genetic markers of susceptibility to infectious diseases.
