Here you will find information about Research groups in the PathoGenoMics fields from the ERA-NET partner countries (Austria, Finland, France, Hungary, Israel, Latvia, Portugal, Slovenia and Spain).
This information is supposed to support cooperation between researchers from different European countries
and thus enhance the development of a European Research Area for PathoGenoMics .


The following information is available and can be searched for:

  • researcher names
  • Institution of the respective researcher, city and country of his/her institution
  • Contact data of the researcher (address, phone, email)
  • Research topics and studied microorganisms of the researcher
  • Special techniques applied by the researcher
  • Potential cooperation topics suggested by the researcher

Name: Dr. Courvalin, Patrice
Institution: Institut Pasteur, Unité des Agents Antibactériens
City: Paris Zip: 75724
Country: France Phone: 1 45 68 83 20
    Fax: 1 45 68 83 19


Research Topics:
The Unité des Agents Antibactériens studies the genetic basis, biochemical mechanisms, heterologous expression, evolution, biological cost, and dissemination of antibiotic resistance in bacteria pathogens for humans; in particular in the following systems: enterococci-glycopeptides and aminoglycosides; resistance to ß-lactams, aminoglycosides and quinolones in Gram-negative bacteria. We have also developed a system that allows direct transfer of genetic material from bacteria to a large variety of mammalian cells.


Organisms studied:
  • Acinetobacter
  • Enterobacteriaceae
  • Enterococci
  • Pseudomonas
  • Staphylococcus
