Isabelle Schwartz-Cornil is working at the National Institute for Agriculture Research (INRA) in France. She is head of the “Vaccine, Viruses and Immunopathology” team in the Molecular Virology and Immunology department at INRA in Jouy-en-Josas, near Paris. She was trained as a veterinarian (1982-1986) and she first developed a research expertise in cancer research (1986-1991) and in the physiopathology of Bovine Leukemia Virus infection (1991-1999). In the last 15 years, she developed an expertise in the molecular and functional characterization of mononuclear phagocyte subsets in sheep and pigs, at homeostasis and during viral infections (Bluetongue Virus, Influenza, Rift Valley Fever Virus). She is currently developing several vaccine strategies based on dendritic cell targeting. She is coordinator of the European Horizon2020 project “Strengthening Animal Production and Health through Immune Response” (SAPHIR, 2015-2018) which aims to develop vaccine strategies effective against endemic pathogens responsible for high economic losses in livestock.
