After 5 years of experience in various public service research laboratories in immunology and genetics, Caroline Hervet joined INRA in 2007 as a research technician in molecular biology within the GenAqua team of the Animal Genetics and Integrative Biology Unit (GABI) in Jouy en Josas (78). She contributed to the mapping of new genetic markers of rainbow trout, and participated in the study of the rainbow trout genome in order to search for disease resistance QTLs, as well as providing field assistance during sample collection or infection realizations. She has also been the Quality Correspondent for the GenAqua team since 2011.

In parallel with these missions at INRA, Caroline Hervet pursued various university degree programs (immunology, hematology, molecular biology) and validated a Master II in Signaling and Integrated Systems in Biology at the École Pratique des Hautes Études in 2010.

In 2015, she joined the BIOEPAR joint research unit in order to contribute her expertise in molecular biology and participate in improving knowledge of the genome and transcriptome of the Ixodes ricinus tick within the TiBoDi team. In 2018, she also joins the ImmunoCare team to participate in studies on the understanding and analysis of interactions between viral respiratory pathogens in the porcine species. Today, she is in charge of lineage maintenance, virus amplification and titration while participating in various projects on the study of infections and co-infections in vitro. For the past 4 years, she has been leading the UMR's Quality group, informing and raising the awareness of the members of the unit to the approach, setting up a sample management system and monitoring metrology within the UMR.
