Molecular Bacteriology Infection

The Molecular Bacteriology section in the Department of Medical Microbiology performs fundamental, translational and application-oriented research on the very diverse roles of bacteria in human health and disease. The main objective is to develop novel approaches for the prevention, detection or treatment of diseases caused by important bacterial human pathogens that are especially threatening to very young, elderly or immune-compromised individuals.

The molecular bacteriological research addresses the mechanisms that lead to virulence and antibiotic resistance of Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pneumoniae and Porphyromonas gingivalis in order to identify novel targets for preventive or therapeutic interventions with novel anti-microbial agents, human monoclonal antibodies or vaccines. In addition, innovative solutions for the direct detection of bacterial infections are explored using antibiotics or antibodies that have been labeled with near infrared fluorophores or radioisotopes. In ecological studies the dynamics of the human gut microbiota and interactions between bacteria are investigated, not only in relation to disease but also in response to interventions with antibiotics or prebiotics and probiotics. A major theme within the bacteriological studies is the analysis of the secretome, which includes all proteins exported to the cell surface and host milieu. This is important, because the secretome is the main reservoir of compounds that influence human health in negative or positive ways.
