Dr. Thibault G. Sana did his undergraduate studies in Chemistry and Biotechnology at Institut Paul Lambin in Brussels. In 2007, he moved to Marseilles to pursue his Master of Science in Microbiology and Biotechnology. He then obtained a 3-year fellowship from the French Ministry, as well as a 1-year Assistant Teacher and Researcher (ATER) position at the University of Aix-Marseille to perform his PhD in addition to delivering over 300 hours of lectures at the University. During his PhD work at CNRS with Dr. Sophie Bleves, he described the second Type Six Secretion System (T6SS) of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, which is important for invasion of epithelial cells. He elucidated a mechanism by which the T6SS toxin is injected into epithelial cells and targets the gamma-tubulin complex, resulting in microtubule-dependent internalization of bacteria. In 2013, Dr. Sana moved to Lyon to perform postdoctoral research with Dr. Thomas Henry at INSERM, and studied the impact of nitric oxygen synthases on AIM2 inflammasome activation during Francisella novicida infection. In 2014, he moved to California for a postdoctoral position at Stanford University in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology with Dr. Denise Monack. He currently studies the intracellular lifestyle of Salmonella Typhimurium as well as the role of its T6SS for gut invasion.
