Jean-Laurent Casanova honored with Belgium’s highest scientific prize

Jean-Laurent Casanova, professor and head of the St. Giles Laboratory of Human Genetics of Infectious Diseases at Rockefeller University, has received the 2011 InBev-Baillet Latour Health Prize for his pioneering work on the identification of genes that predispose for human i...

Researchers uncover molecular mechanisms of rare skin disease

...Led by Rockefeller scientist Jean-Laurent Casanova, head of the St. Giles Laboratory of Human Genetics of Infectious Diseases, a group of researchers recently elucidated the molecular mechanisms that make people with EV vulnerable to ß-HPVs. In a new study, published in th...

In brief: Mutation explains why some people are more vulnerable to viral brain infection

...Rockefeller’s Jean-Laurent Casanova has identified mutations in a single gene that may explain what goes wrong in cases of encephalitis of the brain stem, the part of the brain that controls many basic functions including heart rate and breathing. Shen-Ying Zhang, assistan...

Study identifies genetic mutation responsible for tuberculosis vulnerability

...Hoping to better understand why only some people are prone to TB, Jean-Laurent Casanova worked with clinicians across the world to collect DNA samples from patients with active forms of the disease. By analyzing these samples, the researchers discovered that the risk of de...

Rockefeller scientists launch a broad range of studies into novel coronavirus

...Rockefeller’s Jean-Laurent Casanova is the world leader in identifying gene mutations responsible for extreme variations in infectious disease outcomes. This research can identify human genes that are essential for resisting viral infection or whose mutation prevents the v...

Jeffrey V. Ravetch to receive 2018 Robert Koch Award

...Rice in 2015 for studies of the hepatitis C virus, Jean-Laurent Casanova in 2014 for work on genetic susceptibility to infectious disease, and Ralph Steinman in 1999 for discovering dendritic cells and their influence on immunity. René Jules Dubos was the first Rockefeller...

In the News - Newsweek - Casanova

...Jean-Laurent Casanova, a professor at Rockefeller University who studies how genetic coding can make a person more susceptible to disease. 'If we continue to rely solely on antibiotics, we are going to have a problem.'"

New research explains why a common bacterium can produce severe illness

...Jean-Laurent Casanova, head of St. Giles Laboratory of Human Genetics of Infectious Diseases and Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator, led a team of researchers to uncover how two different conditions—a genetic immunodeficiency and delayed acquired immunity—can com...

Talking Science lecture introduces students to the genetic aspects of infectious diseases

As he opened this year’s Talking Science lecture, geneticist Jean-Laurent Casanova made a stark observation to his teenage audience: “If we had been here 150 years ago, about half of you would already have died.” The primary reason, he told the 350 high school students and 60...
