Current Research:

Identifying markers of West Nile virus and dengue disease outcome in humans

Trained for the past 14 years in basic science, Marion Lanteri Ph.D. acquired expertise in virology and molecular/cell biology during her Ph.D. training in France while working on glycan modifications in a context of HIV infection. She was a lecturer in immunology and virology (specializing in HIV and emerging pathogens) for students attending the Master’s degree program of biochemistry from the University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis, France. She gained expertise in immunology during her post-doctoral training at Blood System Research Institute while working on T cell responses to West Nile virus(WNV) in blood donors using immunologic assays such as ELISPOT assays, flow cytometry and cell culture. After her post-doctoral fellowship, her primary research focus remained on WNV and extended to dengue virus (DENV) infection in humans. As a Co-Investigator and the Project Manager for the multi-center study titled “Viral/Immune parameters of Dengue and WNV in donors: blood safety implications”, Marion helped building repositories of biospecimens collected from longitudinal cohorts of WNV+ and DENV+ blood donors and characterized for immune and viral parameters, to inform WNV and DENV screening guidelines. Comparing the dynamics of immune and viral parameters in asymptomatic and symptomatic blood donors infected with WNV or DENV, Marion is interested in identifying the markers associated with disease outcome, viral persistence and risk of transfusion-transmission using the murine model to complement our studies of blood donors. She is also interested in OMICS approaches to identify predictive markers of disease outcome and new therapeutic targets.
Marion Lanteri is also an investigator and the Study Coordinator for several multi-center studies including the Central Laboratory portion of the “Recipient Epidemiology and Donor Evaluation Study (REDS)-III” supported by the NHLBI and addressing a variety of questions on the safety of blood donations and transfusions from both donor and recipient points of view.
