Dr. Christophe d’Enfert is an Associate Professor at Institut Pasteur, Paris, France and the Head of the Fungal Biology and Pathogenicity Unit. Dr. d’Enfert gained his PhD at Institut Pasteur working on protein secretion in Gram-negative bacteria. During his post-doctoral training at the University of California at Berkeley, he studied protein secretion in yeast. Since 1992, he joined Institut Pasteur to study human pathogenic fungi and has developed both fundamental and applied research on the two major fungal pathogens, Candida albicans and Aspergillus fumigatus. Current research in his laboratory focuses on C. albicans genomics, biofilm formation and molecular epidemiology. Furthermore, post-genomic approaches are developed to identify novel antifungal targets in A. fumigatus. Dr. d’Enfert is the coordinator of the Marie Curie Research and Training Network Galar Fungail 2 that uses post-genomic to study C. albicans interactions with host cells.

Dr. d’Enfert is also a Visiting Professor at Ecole Polytechnique in France.
