Benjamin Trinité

Post-doctoral researcher

Benjamin Trinité obtained a degree in Physiology and Immunology at the University of Rouen in 1999. During his master he joined the group of Dr Regis Josien, at the Institute of Transplantation and Research in Transplantation (ITERT), INSERM U643 (now Centre de Recherche en Transplantation et Immunologie CRTI UMR 1064), in Nantes. There, he subsequently undertook his doctoral training and studied dendritic cell biology.

In 2004 he started his postdoctoral training at UPenn (Philadelphia, USA), in the group of Dr Yongwon Choi, where he studied the role of TRAF6 signalling on dendritic cells development and function. Next he joined the group of Dr Julie Blander, at Mount Sinai School of medicine, in New York, where he studied the regulation of cross-presentation by TLR signalling. In 2010 he joined the group of Dr David N. Levy at New York University as Associate Research Scientist. There, he focused his research on the interplay between HIV-1 and resting CD4 T cells. His work contributed to the notion that HIV-1 is well adapted to replicate within resting CD4 T cells, he showed that FoxO1 signalling and HIV-1 expression are mutually antagonistic and demonstrated that in certain conditions, unintegrated HIV-1 DNA genomes can support viral replication.

In 2018, Benjamin joined IrsiCaixa in the Cell Virology and Immunology (VIC), group headed by Dr Julià Blanco.
