Sébastien Jaillon

Associate Professor

General Pathology
Assistant Professor

I obtained a PhD in immunology in 2007 (French Institute of Health and Medical Research (INSERM-Unit 564, University of Angers, France).

Since January 2016, I am Assistant Professor at the Humanitas University, Pieve Emanuele, Milan, Italy. My research activity is focused on the cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in innate immunity and inflammation and their role in cancer. My expertise and leadership in the fields of neutrophil biology, immunology, immunopathology and cancer can be underlined by primary research articles and review articles published in prime journals (e.g. Cell, Nature, Immunity, J Exp Med, Nat Rev Immunol, Blood).


Humanitas is a highly specialized Hospital, Research and Teaching Center. Built around centers for the prevention and treatment of cancer, cardiovascular, neurological and orthopedic disease – together with an Ophthalmic Center and a Fertility Center – Humanitas also operates a highly specialised Emergency Department.
