Infection medicine

Bacteria, viruses and parasites have been with us humans since ancient times. They will be our “companions” in the future, for as we defeat some diseases, new diseases emerge or old re-emerge from the shadows. Most human infections are zoonotic, meaning that they occur mainly in animals but also have the capacity to cross species boundaries and infect humans. At the Section for infectious diseases we use a multidisciplinary approach to study zoonotic infections and antibiotics resistance in our new platform the Zoonosis Science Center.
