Preventive Veterinary Microbiology
Our aim is to design novel approaches for disease prevention through development of vaccines and alternative antimicrobial treatments. Our main focus is to identify and understand factors involved in disease initiation and progression in animals to improve welfare and productivity. Infectious diseases in poultry, pigs, fish and horses are the main focus of our research.
The role of Streptococcus zooepidemicus persister cells during endometritis in the natural equine hostStreptoccocus equi is an opportunistic pathogen colonizing the mucus membranes.
Co-evolution of selected Pasteurellaceae species and their hostsPasteurellaceae bacteria are opportunistic pathogens evolved in close association with a broad range of vertebrate hosts.
Identification of novel vaccine targets against G. anatis and A. pleuropneumoniaeOur vaccine projects will develop vaccine prototypes that offer protection in a serotype-independent manner.
Host-pathogen interaction in relation to salpingitis and peritonitis in poultryBacterial peritonitis and salpingitis are common infections found in egg-laying hens resulting in low animal welfare.
PROHEALTH - Sustainable pig and poultry productionUnderstanding of the multi-factorial dimension of animal pathologies linked to the intensification of production.
Enterococcus caecorum pathogenesisEnterococcus caecorumemerging among broiler flocks in Europe.
E. coli salpingitis in egg laying hensa major cause of reduced productivity, increased mortality and risk for vertical transmission of E. coli.
