Claire Rogel-Gaillard is a senior scientist working at the French National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA). She heads the INRA-AgroParisTech joint Laboratory of Animal Genetics and Integrative Biology located at Jouy-en-Josas, France. She is director of Sciences Animales Paris-Saclay (SAPS), a multidisciplinary institute for research, training and innovation in the animal sciences that is anchored in the Paris-Saclay University. She was trained as an engineer in agronomy (AgroParisTech, France), and she specialized in livestock. She prepared a PhD at the Pasteur Institute (Paris, France) working on human papillomaviruses and was further recruited at INRA. She is member of SLA Nomenclature Committee formed in 2002 as a joint ISAG/IUIS-VIC committee. She participated in the international sequencing projects of the pig and rabbit reference genomes, co-coordinated the annotation of the pig immunome and published the first gene catalogue of the pig gut microbiome in collaboration with China and Denmark.Her current research activities focus on the characterization and prediction of individual variability of immune capacity and vaccine response mainly in pigs. She runs integrative projects on large-scale animal cohorts that combine phenotyping of immune and production traits, genetics, functional genomics and metagenomics, in a perspective of data integration and modelling.
