Pr. Carmen LEFAUCHEUR
The WP4 Coordinator
Pr Carmen Lefaucheur is nephrologist at the Nephrology and Kidney Transplantation Department, Saint-Louis Hospital APHP and Professor of Nephrology at Paris Diderot University (France); Co-Head of the Paris Translational Research Center for Organ Transplantation ("PTG") of which she is founding member since 2008. She is Director of Transplant Immunology Research Program at the PTG. Her research aims to develop a translational research model in organ transplantation which may connect immunological, histological, molecular and clinical knowledge. She has focused on the clinical relevance of HLA system and mechanistic pathways leading to allograft rejection.
Fibrosis, a common feature associated with chronic tissue inflammation, intrudes into a wide range of distinct solid organ transplants; this presents a unique opportunity to decipher the interaction between inflammation and fibrotic disease in different organs. In this WP, we will link inflammation and allograft fibrosis in heart, lung, kidney, and liver transplant patients, relying on a multidisciplinary and translational approach that involves precise phenotyping of the organ lesion, including analysis of omics and histopathology data, dissection of immunological mechanisms, use of novel data mining and computational methods, and transfer of findings to patient management.
