In 1993, after a post-doctoral fellowship at Harvard Medical School (Dana-Farber Cancer Institute), he joined the CIML where he founded the team “Natural Killer cells and Innate Immunity” in 1996. His researches helped to elucidate the role of NK cells and more broadly to decipher the molecular mechanisms controlling their activation. They also opened the way for the development of new immunotherapeutic strategies against cancer and inflammatory diseases.
