Alice Dautry is a professor at the Pasteur Institute in Paris, France. Since 2005 she has been leading the Institute as the President. She studied molecular biology in Paris as well as at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, USA. In 1983 she started her own research program at the Institut Pasteur in Paris. In addition she worked as a teacher at the Institut Pasteur as well as the École Polytechnique in Paris. In addition she worked as a teacher at the Institut Pasteur as well as at the École Polytechnique in Paris.
Her main research has focused on receptors of the immune system, IL2 and T cell receptors and the links between trafficking and signalling. She described a new process of endocytosis and its connections with the cytoskeletion to link uptake and signalling processes of eukaryotic cells.
Her group also addresses the same type of questions concerning intracellular pathogens Chlamydia, and their interactions with host cells. Using different techniques in cell biology as well as in immunology, she was able to study the infectious process of these important pathogens. She was especially involved in the characterization of Chlamydia proteins which are secreted by the type III secretion mechanism. Moreover, she analyzes apoptosis which is induced by the Chlamydia pathogen. Alice Dautry belongs to the leading scientists in European cellular biology.
