Vincent ROBERT


Vincent ROBERT and sheep

During 2003 I obtained a professional license in biotechnology and industrial microbiology. I joined INRA in 2005 for working on the mechanisms responsible for the virulence and carriage of Salmonella in chiken. In 2008 I changed team. I work with doctors Isabelle FRANCESCHINI and BELTRAMO Massimiliano on the kisspeptide. Rather specialized in molecular biology and bacteriology I broaden the field of my skills: cell culture, animal experimentation. At present, I am further diversifying my skills in relation to researchers needs
