In early September, we waved goodbye to another dear member of the Innate Lab – Vince is moving back to Marseille for his new position at Beckman Coulter Diagnostics. We had another farewell party filled with lots of French wine and delicacies, lots of laughter and tears, plus one big French dance!
Dear Vince, thank you for being such an inspiration to the lab. You have been instrumental to our research in SARS-CoV-2 and beyond. Your energy and humour, and your extensive knowledge in virology, have a profound influence on all of us! We hope you’ll enjoy the sun and beach, as well as your new job in Marseille. Come back any time when you miss mountains and beer!
Here’s a selection of Vince’s work with us:
- Multilevel proteomics reveals host perturbations by SARS-CoV-2 and SARS-CoV
- ADAM10 and ADAM17 promote SARS‐CoV‐2 cell entry and spike protein‐mediated lung cell fusion
- Attenuation of SARS‐CoV‐2 replication and associated inflammation by concomitant targeting of viral and host cap 2’‐O‐ribose methyltransferases
- SARS-CoV-2 CD8+ T cell killing assays using replicating viruses and transgenic antigens
