The Centre for Immunology and Microbial Infections (Cimi) is a mixed research unit created in 2014. It is affiliated to Sorbonne University, Inserm and CNRS. The Cimi is located on the campus of Sorbonne University’s Faculty of Medicine at the Pitié-Salpêtrière site in Paris.

The location encourages a strong dynamic and interactions between the research teams and the hospital services. Approximately 150 people work at the Cimi, including researchers, teachers, technical personnel and research support staff.

The research conducted at the Cimi explores  how the immune system functions and host-pathogen interactions, but also aims to develop immune-based therapeutic strategies and new ways to fight infectious diseases.

Topics: immunology, inflammation, immuno-oncology, microbiology, host-pathogen interactions, antibiotic resistance, vaccinology.
