Brief description

The Institute of Hygiene and Microbiology (Department of Medical Microbiology and Mycology) conducts research in the field of human pathogenic fungi. Both the variability of the pathogens and the activation of the human immune system during sepsis are investigated. Furthermore, it is being investigated how the fungus-specific patterns of immune activation can possibly be used diagnostically and which genetic factors determine the individual risk of patients suffering from an invasive fungal infection.
