DR. VADIM JUCAUD'S LABORATORY


ABOUT DR. VADIM JUCAUD


Dr. Vadim Jucaud is an Assistant Professor at the Terasaki Institute for Biomedical Innovation (TIBI). Dr. Jucaud has been part of the Terasaki Laboratory since 2010, where he started his research career under the mentorship of Professor Paul I. Terasaki in the fields of histocompatibility and immunogenetics, with a particular emphasis on HLA antibodies and the Humoral Theory of Transplantation.

Dr. Jucaud has a Ph.D. in Immunology and Microbiology, specializing in transplant immunology and Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) immunobiology, notably in the diversity, detection, and prediction of the humoral response against HLA molecules. Dr. Jucaud is an expert in HLA immunogenetics, histocompatibility, and immunogenicity, with excellent technical skills forged by 12 years of experience in characterizing the humoral immune response in transplant patients, T and B cell immunomodulation, sensitive multiplex immunoassays, antibody cross-reactivity and immunogenic antibody epitopes, and HLA antibody/antigen interactions. Dr. Jucaud received the American Transplant Congress Young Investigator Award in 2018 for his outstanding work demonstrating the prevalence and impact of de novo donor-specific antibodies during a multicenter immunosuppression withdrawal trial in adult liver transplant recipients.

With the establishment of TIBI in 2020, Dr. Jucaud has been leading the organs-on-a-chip and biosensors team. Motivated by his background and the exciting multidisciplinary research at TIBI, Dr. Jucaud is proposing a unique approach to combine HLA immunobiology, organ-on-a-chip technologies, tissue engineering, biomaterials, and biosensors for developing novel immunocompetent organs-on-a-chip platforms and microphysiological systems. The long-term objective of Dr. Jucaud's lab is to engineer innovative in vitro models recapitulating complex biological mechanisms of organ physiology and disease states to be considered by regulatory authorities as an indispensable step in accelerating drug discovery and development pipelines and promoting personalized medicine applications while reducing the need for animal model testing.

Dr. Jucaud has authored over 55 peer-reviewed publications and 32 conference abstracts, with an h-index of 19 and over 1,120 citations.


RESEARCH OVERVIEW


Dr. Vadim Jucaud’s Lab is recognized for its vibrant and collaborative research environment, where multidisciplinary teams thrive and innovation flourishes. With access to state-of-the-art facilities and cutting-edge equipment, scientists in the lab are empowered to push the boundaries of scientific discovery in four major research thematic areas: (1) Organ on-a-chip models; (2) Organ transplantation; (3) Biosensors and biomarker detection; and (4) Biomaterials. These research thematics seamlessly overlap, thus fostering a holistic approach to advancing biomedical innovation.


Organs-on-a-chip platforms and applications


Dr. Jucaud's Lab is pioneering efforts to democratize Organ-on-a-Chip (OoC) technologies, making them more accessible and applicable in clinical settings worldwide. By significantly reducing fabrication costs and the reliance on expensive facilities and equipment, they are making strides toward translating these innovations into practical clinical applications. For instance, developing a lymph node on-a-chip model could revolutionize cancer treatment by enabling researchers to simulate the complex interactions between cancer cells and the immune system. This could lead to developing more effective cancer vaccines tailored to individual patients, ultimately improving treatment outcomes. In organ transplantation, Dr. Jucaud's Lab's liver on-a-chip model holds promise for enhancing organ preservation techniques and reducing the risk of organ rejection. By mimicking the physiological environment of the liver, this technology could improve the viability of donor organs and increase the success rates of transplant procedures. Their work on the blood-brain barrier on-a-chip allows researchers to study the permeability of drugs across the blood-brain barrier in a controlled environment. This could facilitate the development of more targeted drug delivery systems for treating neurological disorders such as Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease. Moreover, their glioblastoma on-a-chip model offers new avenues for studying the progression of brain cancer and testing potential therapeutic interventions. By recreating the tumor microenvironment, researchers can screen drugs more efficiently and identify novel treatment strategies to combat this deadly disease. Overall, the advancements made by Dr. Jucaud's Lab in OoC technologies have the potential to revolutionize various aspects of clinical practice, from personalized medicine and drug delivery to organ transplantation and cancer treatment. As these technologies continue to evolve and become more accessible, they hold great promise for improving patient outcomes and advancing biomedical innovation.



Transplant immunology and HLA immunobiology


Dr. Jucaud's lab focuses on unraveling the complexities surrounding donor-specific HLA antibodies in organ transplant recipients. Their research encompasses three primary objectives: (1) describing the prevalence, incidence rates, and clinical impact of HLA antibodies; (2) characterizing HLA antibody epitopes; and (3) predicting HLA immunogenicity. Through meticulous analysis, they aim to shed light on the clinical significance of HLA antibodies, identify specific epitopes involved in antibody-antigen interactions, and develop predictive models for immune responses to HLA mismatches. Additionally, their work extends into transplant tolerance, exploring mechanisms by which the immune system can accept donor organs without long-term immunosuppression. Dr. Jucaud's lab strives to improve patient care and transplant outcomes through personalized approaches and novel therapeutic strategies by advancing our understanding of immune responses in organ transplantation.


Biosensors and biomarker detection


Dr. Jucaud's lab explores various biosensing modalities, including label-free electrochemical sensors, label-free optical sensors, TEER (trans-epithelial electrical resistance) sensors, solid-phase immunoassays such as Luminex and ELISA, and micro cell-based ELISA. For instance, label-free electrochemical sensors utilize changes in electrical properties to detect biomolecular interactions, offering real-time monitoring capabilities. This technology has been integrated with organ-on-a-chip platforms to assess drug-induced changes in cellular behavior or evaluate the efficacy of therapeutic interventions. Biosensors have been adapted for real-time monitoring of cell secretome, allowing researchers to track the dynamic secretion of proteins and signaling molecules from cells cultured within organ-on-a-chip devices. This capability enables the study of cellular responses to environmental cues or drug treatments in a physiologically relevant context, facilitating the identification of biomarkers indicative of cellular health or disease states. The development of contact lens biosensors also represents an innovative approach for non-invasive monitoring of biomarkers in ocular fluids, offering potential applications in disease diagnosis and management. Biosensors play an important role in biomarker detection and offer versatile applications across various research areas and clinical settings. Integrating biosensing technologies with organ-on-a-chip platforms enhances their utility for studying complex biological systems and facilitates translation into clinical practice by providing valuable insights into disease mechanisms, drug efficacy, and patient-specific responses to therapy.


Biomaterials


In conjunction with organ-on-a-chip technologies and biosensors, Dr. Jucaud's lab explores synergistic opportunities to enhance the functionality and clinical translation of biomaterials. By integrating biomaterials with organ-on-a-chip platforms, Dr. Jucaud's lab can create sophisticated microphysiological systems that closely mimic the complexity of human organs, enabling more accurate evaluation of biomaterial performance in physiologically relevant environments. Integrating biomaterials, organ-on-a-chip technologies enables synergistic advancements in drug screening, disease modeling, and personalized medicine, ultimately accelerating the translation of research findings into clinical applications and improving patient care.
