Lluis Quintana-Murci, Institut Pasteur, France
Lluis Quintana-Murci, PhD, is CNRS Research Director and heads the Unit of Human Evolutionary Genetics at the Institut Pasteur in Paris. His research is focused on understanding how selection, demography and lifestyle have shaped the patterns of genetic diversity of human populations. Dr Quintana-Murci’s lab also explores how infectious diseases have exerted selective pressures on the human genome to unmask immunological mechanisms that have been critical for our past and present survival. His lab combines molecular and population genetics approaches with computational modelling, often working closely to theoretical population geneticists, immunologists, epidemiological geneticists as well as anthropologists. Dr Quintana-Murci is supported by the Institut Pasteur, the CNRS and the European Research Council.
