Research Areas

Pathogens

Pathogens

We perform research in virology, bacteriology, and mycology that pose a public health threat.
Diseases

Diseases

We search the response of the body to the microorganisms, investigate unknown diseases that could be of infectious in origin.
Diagnostics

Diagnostics

We aim to develop easy-to-use, cheap, and accessible diagnostic tests for infectious diseases.
Treatment

Treatment

We do more than repurposing the existing drugs with an interdisciplinary effort.
Infection Control

Infection Control

We aim to produce creative scientific solutions for infection control.

Mission

Our mission is to lead a wide spectrum of scientific research to understand, treat, and prevent infectious diseases. In doing so, we aim to form a bridge in between the laboratory bench and clinical level of findings.

Vision

The Research Center for Infectious Diseases is dedicated to having a better understanding of infectious agents and related diseases. The purpose is to investigate biological characteristics of pathogens, their evolving mechanisms and clinical behaviour, comparatively. Eventually we aim to combine our practical and theoretical knowledge to treat and prevent infectious diseases by conducting research on emerging vector-borne diseases, antimicrobial resistance, fungal and viral infections.
