Centre de Recherche
Institut Curie is a major player in the research and fight against cancer. It consists of a Hospital Group and a Research Center of more than 1000 employees with a strong international representativeness.
The objective of the Research Center is to develop basic research and to use the knowledge produced to improve the diagnosis, prognosis, and therapeutics of cancers as part of the continuum between basic research and innovation serving the patient.


The Stem cell immunity laboratory is a young and dynamic team, created in the Institut Curie in December 2021 within the Immunity and Cancer unit (U932). Because stem cells are key for the maintenance of tissue architecture and integrity, they need to be protected from insults. There is increasing evidence that stem cells implement specific immune mechanisms not found in differentiated cells. The team focuses on identifying and characterising these mechanisms. For example, we recently discovered that stem cells express an antiviral protein called aviD, which specifically targets viral genomes and thwarts infection from RNA viruses such as SARS-CoV-2 (Poirier et al., 2021, Science).

Our current projects focus on:

  • understanding and characterising the aviD antiviral response
  • assessing if stem cell-specific mechanisms of protection are shared by cancer cells and play a role in cancer growth or immune evasion
  • discovering novel stem cell-specific mechanisms of defence
