The Immune Component of Lyme Disease: A Review
After a PhD in Immunolgy in Nantes, France, Dr. Gascan spent two years at Stanford University as post-doc fellow at DNAX Research Institute. He then went back to France to take a CNRS position, and for 14 years has been director of an Inserm research laboratory at Angers University, before recently moving to Rennes, still in the West part of the country. Dr. Gascan's main professional interest is in Immnology (cytokine networks) and its implication in chronic and infectious diseases, as well in cancerogenesis. More recently, he is interested in the host immune component in the chronic form of the Lyme disease.
