The study of the biology, transmission, pathogenesis and treatment of viruses, bacteria, and other microorganisms important for human disease, together with the host response to microbial infection.
|Judith Behnsen||Microbiology and Immunology||We study the role of the bacterial and fungal microbiota during Salmonella pathogenesis using in vitro and in vivo systems (germ-free mice).|
