French virologist, Professor. Key areas of research and experience include understanding the basics and areas of disease occurrence, the ecoepidemiology of viral diseases, Biosafety, biosecurity, and bio-surveillance. The Professor and his team identified new human and animal pathogens, developed tools and strategies for bio-surveillance, control and prevention of highly pathogenic infectious diseases, and reviewed the spread and dynamics of viral hemorrhagic fevers in Africa and Asia. In addition, as a rapid response to and control of epidemics, he worked with his partners to train national health professionals (Nigeria, Uganda) , developed clinical trials of vaccines (rift valley hemorrhagic fever in Senegal; dengue in Thailand), and respond to outbreaks (for example, Ebola virus disease in Sierra Leone).
