Vadim Jucaud, PhD, 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. Dr. Jucaud has a Ph.D. in Immunology and Microbiology with a particular emphasis on Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) immunobiology, notably on the diversity, detection, and prediction of the humoral response against HLA molecules. He is an expert HLA immunogenetics, histocompatibility, and immunogenicity. Dr. Jucaud has extensive experience in characterizing the humoral immune response in transplant patients, developing sensitive multiplex immunoassays, the characterization of 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. Dr. Jucaud is an Assistant Professor at the Terasaki Institute for Biomedical Innovation since august 2020. His research focuses on developing immunocompetent organ-on-a-chip models, biosensors, and wearable devices.
