Leslie A Reperant. DVM, PhD
Post-doctoral researcher, Artemis One Health Research Foundation, Utrecht, the Netherlands
Leslie A. Reperant graduated in veterinary medicine at the National Veterinary School of Lyon, France in 2004, and obtained a PhD at Princeton University, Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, USA in 2010. After one year of post-doctoral research at Princeton, Leslie moved to the Department of Viroscience at the Erasmus Medical Centre in Rotterdam, the Netherlands to carry out a two-year EU FP7 Marie Curie International Incoming Fellowship. Since November 2014, she has been a scientific researcher at the Artemis One Health Research Foundation in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Leslie is interested in the ecology of emerging and zoonotic pathogens, and in particular in their ability to cross species barriers and adapt to novel host species. She has studied the epidemiological and evolutionary dynamics of influenza viruses of different host origin, in the light of their pathogenesis within individual hosts, by use of mathematical modeling and experimental approaches.
