Personal profile


Jerome works in the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences (Biomedicine Discovery Institute) at Monash University as an Australian Research Council (ARC) Future Fellow. Jerome was initially trained as a chemist at the University of Brest (France) prior to the completion of his PhD in structural biology at the University of Copenhagen (Denmark) in 2005. During his PhD, he acquired a set of skills and expertise in a range of biophysical techniques that enabled him to complete a very successful PhD with the publication of a total of five peer-review articles (four as first author). He then pursued his scientific career as a research fellow at the University of Auckland (New Zealand) where he studied the protein structures of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. In 2008, Jerome relocated to Australia and accepted a research fellow position at Monash  in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, where he expanded his interest and skills in immunity and structural biology. Since then, he has established an impressive track record with the publication in top-tier generalist journals such as Nature and Nature Communications, and in very prestigious high impact journals in the field of immunology such as Nature Immunology, Immunity and The Journal of Experimental Medicine. Of particular significance are Jerome’s contributions to the field of non-classical MHC (Major Histocompatibility Complex)-mediated T-cell immunity. In 2016, Jerome was awarded a prestigious ARC Future fellowship, and in 2017, he was appointed as an independent group leader within the Biomedicine Discovery Institute (Monash University). By applying a multi-disciplinary and highly innovative approaches that include comparative immunology, chemistry, structural biology, cell immunology, advanced atomic and molecular imaging, his research program aims to provide comprehensive and fundamental insights into molecular recognition of non-peptidic antigens (Ags), and gain an evolutionary perspective on the structure and function of MHC-like Ag-presenting molecules.
