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.
We regularly offer doctoral theses on bacteriological or mycological topics. Start your scientific career at the Institute of Bacteriology and Mycology.
(Thomas Edison) We regularly publish our research results in international journals.
Our projects are supported by research communities, institutes, societies, biotechnology companies and associations.
We are in constant scientific exchange with cooperation partners from science and industry. Because: “If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.” (Henry Ford)
