Understanding infections: from pathogenesis to diagnosis


·       The tasks of the Division of Hygiene and Medical Microbiology (HMM) comprise research, teaching, laboratory diagnosis of infectious diseases, environmental and hospital hygiene as well as technical hygiene.

·       Activities cover fungal pathogenicity and virulence factors, molecular mechanisms of host pathogen-interaction including the complement system, basic immunological research (interactions of dendritic cells/T-cells), antimicrobial agents (antimycotics and endogenous antiseptics), enterohemorrhagic E. coli and prevention of nosocomial infections.

·       The HMM seeks to prevent illness and death from targeted infectious disease threats through research and the translation of scientific information into real-world, practical applications, policies, and solutions.
