Institute of Bacteriology and Mycology
Prof. Dr. Christoph Baums was awarded for his excellent supervision of doctoral students in the course of this year’s Supervisor Awards.
Ann-Kathrin Krieger is investigating new antimicrobial agents as part of her doctoral research and has recently published initial results in the Journal of Global Antimicrobial Resistance.
In six case studies, students of veterinary medicine can practise bacteriological and mycological diagnosis.
In October 2020 we could rejoice twice. Sophie Kähls and Jakob Lindenhahns manuscripts were published in Microbes and Infection and Medical Mycology.
The Institute of Bacteriology and Mycology belongs to the Centre for Infectious Diseases of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine. Our tasks include teaching and research. We offer a service for microbiological diagnostics and supervise the Core Unit CUMI.
At our institute we impart theoretical and practical knowledge in bacteriology and mycology to veterinary medicine students.
Scientists of the Institute work on the elucidation of pathogen-host interactions and on the identification of virulence factors of bacterial and mycological pathogens of importance for veterinary medicine.
At the Institute of Bacteriology and Mycology, veterinarians can train to become specialists in bacteriology and mycology. In addition, we offer various ATF-approved training courses for veterinarians.
