Françoise Barré-Sinoussi, souhaite une mobilisation plus large des industriels

Montréal (QUEBEC) – Lors d’une récente conférence à l’Institut NÉOMED, le Dr Françoise Barré-Sinoussi, Prix Nobel de médecine 2008 pour sa codécouverte du virus du SIDA, a fait la présentation des pistes en développement dans la recherche de nouveaux traitements. La meilleure façon de combattre le virus est d’associer plusieurs thérapeutiques (vaccination, immunothérapie, etc) et de cibler en priorité les réservoirs de virus, explique dans cette interview le Dr Françoise Barré-Sinoussi, qui souhaite également voir une mobilisation plus large des industriels dans la recherche de biomarqueurs. Prochaine conférence à l’Institut NÉOMED : Mike Poole de la Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, le 11 septembre 2015.   (c) The Nobel Foundation 2008.
