Michel DrancourtMichel Drancourt, MD, Ph.D. studied medicine and medical microbiology at Marseilles University where he graduated. He spent a doctoral visit in the Centers for Diseases Control, Atlanta and then assisted Prof Didier Raoult in his laboratory in Marseilles, France. He specialized in emerging infections and microbes and notably participated to the first description of Bartonella endocarditis in the New England Journal of Medicine. He also developed paleomicrobiology and led some initial contributions to the study of past infections, notably past plague epidemics. He is now pursuing his research on neglected emerging organisms such as archaea and planctomycetes as members of the human microbiota and opportunistic pathogens; and on mycobacteria with the development of new techniques for the rapid diagnosis of tuberculosis and non-tuberculous mycobacteria. He co-authored more than 300 international publications and 15 patents and co-founded a start-up devoted to serology of infectious diseases. He was Associate Editor in Chief of Clinical Microbiology and Infection until the creation of New Microbes & New Infections.
