Mathilde RICHARD (Erasmus MC, Rotterdam – PAYS BAS): « » Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza A/H5N1 viruses : evolution, transmission and genesis »
Dr. Mathilde Richard is a molecular virologist at the ErasmusMC in Rotterdam, Netherlands. She completed her PhD in 2010 in France under the supervision of Prof. Bruno Lina with a dissertation on resistance of influenza A viruses to neuraminidase inhibitors. After her PhD, she integrated the team of Prof. Ron Fouchier. Her post-doctoral studies have focused on the pathogenesis, virulence and transmissibility of influenza A viruses, with special emphasis on genetic and phenotypic viral factors involved in the emergence of new pandemics. On this thematic, she was involved in European projects (Antigone, Aditec, Emperie and Compare), acted as the coordinator for the NIH/NIAID Center of Excellence for Influenza Research (US) for the group of Prof. Ron. She recently took the lead of a team consisting of two technicians and one PhD student on the development of new vaccination strategies to protect against potential pandemic viruses on a project funded by the US Government (BARDA). She also recently initiated a project on the pathogenesis and the mechanisms of the emergence of highly pathogenic avian influenza viruses for which is obtained funding from the European Commission.
