Institutes & Facilities
Institute of Bacteriology and Mycology
We do research on S. suis, the most important bacterial pathogen in modern pig husbandry. Other projects focus on klebsiellae, Rodentibacter pneumotropicus, brachyspires and antimicrobial peptides.
We do research on Trichophyton benhamiae, probably the most common zoophilic pathogen of dermatophytosis in children in Germany. Further projects of our research group deal with mycotoxins and the inflammatory marker calprotectin.
At our institute you can dive deep into the world of bacteria and fungi. Start your scientific career at the Institute of Bacteriology and Mycology.
