Dr Camille Danne, a postdoctoral researcher at the Kennedy Institute, has been awarded a prestigious 2-year Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship. The fellowship will support Camille in the next stage of her career as she joins Professor Harry Sokol’s laboratory at the INRA Research Center at Jouy-en-Josas, France.

Working with Prof Fiona Powrie, Camille’s research has examined how Helicobacter hepaticus  - a microbe that commonly inhabits the gut – promotes healthy immune responses in the intestine.

Camille will continue to apply her expertise in the microbiome in her new position, where she will explore how genetic mutations linked to inflammatory bowel disease disrupt populations of beneficial gut microbes leading to inflammation.

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship programme provides support to experienced postdoctoral researchers who wish to move to or within Europe to enhance their career development.

We wish Camille all the best in her new position.
