Dr Meryem Aloulou
Meryem Aloulou El M’Ghari is an immunologist interested in deciphering the regulatory mechanisms of immune homeostasis and their relevance to disease. She is a tenured researcher with Inserm in France and a visiting scientist at the Babraham Institute, Cambridge. Meryem moved from Morocco to Paris to study at Pierre and Marie Curie University, and her PhD work at Paris Diderot University explored new regulatory and pathophysiological functions of antibody receptors. She has worked since 2012 at the Toulouse Institute, studying the heterogeneity of regulatory T cells, with a current focus on the control of humoral responses in health and disease by the different subsets of regulatory T cells. At the Babraham Institute, she has set out to explore the role of regulatory T cells in vaccination and neuroinflammatory disorders.
