Emmanuelle Gilot-Fromont, Professor, Dr.

Emmanuelle Gilot-Fromont is a Full Professor in Epidemiology VetAgro Sup, France since 2009, lecturer at University Claude Bernard Lyon 1 from 1998 to 2008, and Doctor in Veterinary Medicine (Lyon, 1992), PhD (1997), Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches (2006). Emmanuelle is also the Member of the Wildlife Disease Association (2011) and of the European College of Zoological Medicine, Wildlife Population Health section (2014).
Her research focusses on the dynamics of pathogen transmission in natural populations of mammals and at the interface between wildlife and domestic species, on the interaction between pathogen transmission and life history, including immunocompétence, and on the management of pathogens in wildlife. The variations of immunocompetence and their consequences on disease transmission have been analysed in intensively followed roe deer populations, wild boar, rodents and birds. Emmanuelle aims to develop and structure activities related to health management in wildlife, by reinforcing teaching and research in this area. Emmanuelle contributed to 84 papers published in impact factor journals and 5 book chapters, supervised 14 research projects, 15 master students and 13 PhD projects. She developed a new approach and analytical tools to study immunocompetence in natural populations of mammals, by measuring simultaneously a set of immune parameters in captured animals.
