Research areas

Tübingen hosts the co-coordinators for the research areas Malaria and Neglected Tropical Diseases, Gastrointestinal Infections, Healthcare-Associated and Antibiotic-Resistant Bacterial Infections as well as Novel Antibiotics. Scientists in Tübingen focus on translating research results into drug and vaccine development as well as on infection models and epidemiology. For infections caused by bacterial pathogens that are resistant to antibiotics, scientists in Tübingen focus on multidrug-resistant pathogens such as methicillin-resistant staphylococci (MRSA) and gram-negative pathogens (e.g. so-called ESBLs).
