  • HEK-293T cells infected with Chlamydia trachomatis expressing chlamydial deubiquitinase Cdu1-FLAG
Chair of Microbiology

Chair of Microbiology

In the focus of research at the Chair of Microbiology are pathogenicity mechanisms of different microorganisms such as Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Chlamydia trachomatis, Bordetella pertussis and Staphylococcus aureus.

Host-pathogen interactions, pathogen-induced host cell apoptosis as well as the interface of infection and cancer are of peticular interest.
