Director of immunology department at Institut Pasteur
Gérard Eberl obtained his Ph.D. at the University of Lausanne before completing a first postdoc at the Ludwig Institute on Cancer Research. A second position in New York led him to characterise the role of the nuclear hormone receptor RORt in innate lymphoid cells (ILC). In 2005, Gérard was recruited by the Institut Pasteur in Paris to lead the Lymphoid Tissue Development Unit, which became the Microenvironment & Immunity Unit in 2015.
