Laboratory activity

Our laboratory is located at Saint Louis Hospital in Paris. We are working on the identification of new targets for the diagnosis and the therapy of skin diseases. Monoclonal antibodies are essential tools for determining the identification of these molecules. Dr. Armand Bensussan is the president of the French Association of Immunology, he is a member of the International HCDM (Human Cell Differentiation Molecules) Council.
