 Université d’Evry Val d’Essonne (UEVE), France


 Sylvain Fisson came to the AFM-Genethon in September 2011. Initially holds a Masters degree in Cell Biology, followed by a DEA basic immunology at the Pasteur Institute in Paris, then he supports a thesis Neuroimmunology at the University of Angers. Sylvain Fisson then specialized on the interactions between the immune system and the central nervous system in the context of multiple sclerosis. It performs a post-doctorate at the Pitie-Salpetriere hospital on the lymphocytes T regulators. "Dysfunctional  regulatory T cells can cause autoimmune diseases such as diabetes or multiple sclerosis. Her research work has included developing animal models for diseases of the eye such as autoimmune uveitis.

Between 2004 and 2011, Sylvain Fisson is recruited as a lecturer at the University Pierre et Marie Curie and develops a research group in the team of Professor Catherine swings-Fridman, within the  Research Centre des Cordeliers directed by Professor Wolf Herve Fridman. It takes the responsibility of a Master 2 "Research in Pathophysiology of Immune Response" and was elected President of the College of the French Association of Science Teachers immunology (ASSIM).

In 2011, Sylvain Fisson obtains a position of Professor of Immunology at the University of Evry Val d'Essonne and INSERM Unit U951 integrates led by Dr. Anne Galy (Inserm Director of Research) within the AFM-Genethon .  "Genethon is an exceptional human and scientific environment in which he could quickly develop his GTIS research group to study the immune responses associated with gene transfer in connection with immunological sanctuaries like the eye".

In May 2013, under the leadership of Sylvain Fisson the PSEVS the UEVE the Genopole and AFM-Genethon will organize the conference "Bio-Evry». This should take place over two days. It aims to highlight the excellent know-how in biology holds that the territory of Evry to an audience made up of both students, teachers, researchers and entrepreneurs.
