Marco Vignuzzi obtained his B.Sc from McGill University, and MSc and PhD from University of Paris. Following 7 years of postdoctoral studies in Raul Andino’s lab at UCSF, he founded his own laboratory at Institut Pasteur in 2008. Since that time, his work has focused on emerging viral diseases and antiviral therapies based on approaches that target evolutionary mechanisms. Marco is on the editorial board of J Virology, Virus Research, Virus Evolution and PLOS Pathogens. As a committed globalist promoting international cooperation, his lab has directly collaborated with teams in 66 countries and on every continent. In 2015 his work in emerging diseases was awarded the Sanofi National Award in Biomedical Research; in 2019 he received the international Richard Elliott Memorial Award for his work on zoonotic viral diseases.
