Other research topics:
We test for host specificity of bacteria and interaction between bacteria and host cell receptors. We work on virulence mechanisms of E. coli and Salmonella infection and defense of infection by probiotics. We work on biofilm formation, defending biofilms and try to define tissue- and material-specific triggers of microcolony and biofilm formation in E. coli. We work on autoimmune disease and involved bacteria of inflammatory bowel disease. We develop assays and instruments for life science and routine diagnostic in microbiology and autoimmundiagnostics.
We focus on E. coli, Salmonella and other Enterobacteriaceae.
We develop screening technologies for multiplex and real-time detection of antibodies, antigens, enzyme activities and for microbiology (adhesion and invasion assays, biofilm formation). We develop software moduls for data analysis.
Suggestions for potential research cooperations:
Preferred research topics for cooperation: Biofilms: development and defense host-specificity of infections: characterization of host cell receptors and interaction with bacteria Inflammatory bowel diseases: which bacteria are involved, which bacterial receptors are involved screening technologies: establishing screening technologies for application in life sciences and routine diagnostics (cell based assays, microbead based assays, adhesion/invasion assays, digital PCR) E. coli population structures in wild and domestic animals
