Division of Clinical Microbiology

Denna sida på svenska

At the department of Clinical Microbiology, disease processes in cells and tissues caused by microbes infecting humans are studied.

The research is translational with focus on problems identified in clinical care and on the development of improved diagnostics and therapeutic approaches. The research spans from molecular virology, virus-cell interactions and the understanding of individual viral genes and proteins, to the effects these have on the infected patient. Within bacteriology, the effects of antibiotics on the gut microbiota are studied as well as the interaction between bacteria and protozoes. Medical and dental students are educated in basal and clinical microbiology. In addition, courses in general and molecular microbiology are given for students in biomedical laboratory science, nursing, and dental hygienists as well as in molecular cell biology.
