In 2020, researchers at Inserm, Université de Paris, and Assistance Publique–Hôpitaux de Paris (AP-HP), in collaboration with the university hospital organisation Institut Imagine (Hôpital Necker-Enfants malades AP-HP), which has been granted “Institut Carnot” certification through The Rockefeller University and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute in New York, identified the leading genetic and immunological causes responsible for at least 15% of serious forms of Covid-19. Today, this same French and American team, jointly lead by Jean-Laurent Casanova and Laurent Abel* at the Institut Imagine and The Rockefeller University, is joining forces with Cerba HealthCare, a leading stakeholder in medical diagnostics, to transform these discoveries into clinical applications and screen individuals who are more likely to develop a severe form of the disease and tailor their treatment accordingly.
