Charline Giroud Pic
Charline Giroud graduated with a PhD degree in Biochemistry, Cellular and Molecular Biology, specialized in Virology, from the School of Medicine of Montpelier, France (2012). She studied the role of cAMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA) incorporated in HIV-1 particle, in early steps of the virus life cycle and showed that PKA acts as a cofactor of reverse transcription initiation.

She worked at the Department of Paediatric Infectious Diseases at the School of Medicine of Emory University of Atlanta, USA (2013) as a postdoctoral fellow. Using high throughput screening strategy combined to cell-based assay development, she discovered and characterized new HIV-1 and Ebola virus entry inhibitors for HIV-1 and Ebola virus entry. She started in the assay development and screening team in May 2017.
