CV breu en anglès
James Di Santo received his PhD and MD from Cornell University Medical College and the Memorial Sloan–Kettering Cancer Center in 1989 and 1991, respectively. He pursued post-doctoral training with Pr. Alain Fischer in Paris, where he identified and characterized genes responsible for primary human immunodeficiency syndromes. In 1994, Dr. Di Santo became a permanent staff scientist with the Institut National de la Santé et de la Recherche Médicale (Inserm). After spending one year as an EMBO visiting scientist at the University of Genetics in Cologne Germany with Pr. Klaus Rajewsky, Dr. Di Santo returned to Paris in 1996 and created his own research group studying the cytokine control of lymphocyte development and homeostasis. In 1999, Dr. Di Santo moved his laboratory to the Immunology Department of the Institut Pasteur, where he subsequently directed the Immunology Department from 2002 to 2006. In 2007, Dr. Di Santo was promoted to full professor at the Institut Pasteur. His current research interests include deciphering the developmental pathways that generate a new family of innate lymphoid cells and developing new ‘humanized’ mouse models as translational tools to understand human disease pathophysiology.
