Genome Center to operate at Rockefeller in interim

...The NYGC also has begun a project with Jean-Laurent Casanova, head of the St. Giles Laboratory of Human Genetics of Infectious Diseases at Rockefeller, to sequence 1,000 exomes as part of his immune disorder research.

Researchers create map of “shortcuts” between all human genes

...Giles lab, headed by Jean-Laurent Casanova, previously showed that children with HSE have mutations in TLR3 or in genes that are closely functionally related to TLR3. In other words, these genes are located at a short biological distance from TLR3. As a result, novel herpes simplex encephalitis-caus...

Structural biologist, focused on cell transport machinery, to join faculty

...Chen and a second new faculty member, Joseph Gleeson, are the first mid-career faculty members to be recruited to the university since Jean-Laurent Casanova moved his lab to Rockefeller in 2008. (Dr. Gleeson, from the University of California, San Diego, is a geneticist interested in childhood brain...

...Conley is a member of Jean-Laurent Casanova’s St. Giles Laboratory of Human Genetics of Infectious Diseases. Jeffrey V. Ravetch, the Wolf Prize in Medicine. He shares the prize, which includes a monetary award of $100,000, with two other immunologists, John Kappler and Philippa Marrack, who is a m...

Brain displays an intrinsic mechanism for fighting infection

...The lab, headed by Jean-Laurent Casanova, collaborated with scientists at Harvard Medical School and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Institute to create induced pluripotent stem cells. Made from the patients’ own tissue, the stem cells were developed into central nervous system cells that carried ...

Mutation leads to new and severe form of bacterial disease

...Led by Jean-Laurent Casanova, head of the Laboratory of Human Genetics of Infectious Diseases, the work lends further support not only to the controversial idea that an error in a single gene is enough to dramatically alter an individual’s risk for bacterial disease, but also to the notion that hu...

Clinical study to probe genetic link to Salmonella diseases

...The symptoms associated with typhoidal Salmonella are the same regardless of the host’s immunological profile,” says Carolina Prando, a postdoctoral fellow in Jean-Laurent Casanova’s Laboratory of Human Genetics of Infectious Diseases and the co-principal investigator of the study with Rese...

Milestones

...Jean-Laurent Casanova, the 2011 InBev-Baillet Latour Health Prize, Beligum’s highest scientific honor. With a value of 250,000 euros, the InBev-Baillet prize recognizes the practical application of basic research; Dr. Casanova is honored for his work on the identification of genes that predispose ...

Cori Bargmann wins 2009 Lounsbery Award

...Past recipients of the Lounsbery Award include Rockefeller University’s Günter Blobel, Jean-Laurent Casanova and Elaine Fuchs. “Cori’s work on neural circuits and behavior has already taught us much about how the biology of the brain influences an animal’s decisions,” says Paul Nurse, th...
