Dr. Carpentier, Arnaud



Arnaud Carpentier is a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Experimental Virology at TWINCORE. He studied biology in Lille and Paris (France) and completed his studies in 2009. He received his PhD degree from the University Pierre and Marie Curie (Paris), working on hepatitis C virus infection of primary human hepatocytes.

In 2010, he joined the Liver Disease Group of Dr T Jake Liang at the National Institute of Health (NIH, Bethesda, USA) as a postdoctoral fellow. There, he focused on developing new relevant in vitro and in vivo models for hepatitis B (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection using human pluripotent stem cells derived hepatocytes (also called “HLCs”).

In 2015, he joined the Institute of Experimental Virology at TWINCORE, where he studied the innate immune response to HCV infection in HLCs. He now focuses his work on investigating hepatitis D virus and its host pathogen interactions primarily using HLCs and single-cell RNA sequencing.
