Vladimir graduated from the University Pierre & Marie Curie in Paris (France) in 1992 and completed his PhD in Microbiology at the Institut Pasteur in Paris (France) in 1996. After a post-doctoral experience at the University of Padova (Italy), he secured in 1998 a tenured position from the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research (INSERM). In 2006, he joined the College and currently leads a research group within the MRC Centre for Molecular Bacteriology and Infection.
