Prof Antoine-Emmanuel Saliba


Antoine-Emmanuel Saliba studied biochemical engineering at INSA Toulouse (France) and received his PhD in the research group of Jean-Louis Viovy at the Institut Curie (Paris, France). During this time, he developed microfluid-based systems for sorting and analysing rare subpopulations of cancer cells. He then worked as an EIPOD fellow at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (Heidelberg, Germany) and was involved in the development of innovative systems biology methods for the analysis of protein-lipid interactions. He then joined Jörg Vogel's laboratory in Würzburg as a senior postdoctoral fellow and established single-cell RNA-sequencing to track the fate of individual cells during an infection with Salmonella enterica. Since 2017, he has led the Single-cell Analysis group at HIRI. As of 2023, he also holds a professorship (W2) at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Würzburg.
