Research projects in Immuno-Inflammation

Our projects aim to understand the regulatory mechanisms of inflammation and to develop immunotherapeutic strategies (new molecules or cell subpopulations) to control inflammatory responses in different pathological contexts.

Research projects in Immuno-Cancerology

Our projects aim to define therapeutic targets, characterise tumour-specific lymphocyte populations and develop immunotherapeutic strategies (vaccination or adoptive transfer of T cells) to combat solid tumours.

Research projects in Immuno-Infectious Diseases

Our projects aim to characterise the innate and adaptive responses to infection by a pathogen or virus with the aim of developing immunotherapeutic strategies (molecules or adoptive transfer of T cells) to combat infections.

Immunology and New Concepts in Immunotherapy

About us

Created in 2022, the INCIT(Immunology and New Concepts in Immunotherapy) research unit, directed by Frédéric Altare, is based on the desire to focus thescientific expertise of the immunology and immunotherapy teams on different pathological contexts: inflammation, cancer and infectious diseases.

Teams of specialists

INCIT brings together a wide range of immunology skills among its 4 teams, with a common objective:

To decipher the cellular and molecular mechanisms associated with immune responses to develop immunotherapeutic strategies.
