Department of Pathology, Bacteriology and Poultry Diseases

The application oriented research focuses on the development of vaccines, pre- and probiotics and the efficacy-analysis of pesticides against bacteria and fungi, important in veterinary and human health. In vitro and in vivo models are used.

Expertise mainly situates in the field of antibiotics resistance, to estimate the potential transfer of this resistance from animal to human and define measures, and the interaction between bacteria and fungi and their host. This has an effect on

  1. the understanding of molecular mechanisms of pathogenesis
  2. the development of control measurements of infectious diseases. Important here are agents posing a threat for public health (Salmonella, Helicobacter, Campylobacter).
