Molecular Veterinary Bacteriology
Research carried out in the Mol-Micro-VET group aims to find new ways to prevent and cure important bacterial diseases in animals and humans.
- We characterize the metabolism of uropathogenic Escherichia coli and Salmonella during infection in order to find new targets for antibiotics.
- We develop new probiotics to be used for protection against pathogenic E. coli and Enterococci in chicken.
- We study how Salmonella interacts with the host during infection.
- We determine the population structure, infection dynamics and pathogenicity mechanisms when ExPEC E. coli cause disease in animals
- We characterize Pasteurella species associated with rodents and rabbits.
- We find better ways to use antibiotics in order to minimize selection for antibiotic resistant bacteria and we study synthetic antimicrobial peptides as alternatives for antibiotics.
