Institute of Bacteriology and Mycology
After 47 years of work, we are bidding farewell to our biology laboratory assistant Margitta Heider, who is retiring.
In her dissertation, veterinarian Karoline Rieckmann worked intensively on the development of vaccines against S. suis.
We are very pleased with Karoline Rieckmann about this award of the Bundesverband Praktizierender Tierärzte e.V. Department Pig.
On the occasion of the call for vigils in front of animal testing laboratories, we discuss animal testing in the canteen.
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.
