Our research goals

Infectious diseases represent a major problem in both developed and developing countries. New strategies for diagnosis, management and treatment are required. Understanding how pathogens cause disease is essential to combat them successfully.

U1047 has three main themes, 2 fundamental research projects (themes 1 and 2) and a clinical project (theme 3).

Theme 1 Brucella virulence

Theme 2 Virulence of the cystic fibrosis-associated Burkholderia cepacia complex

Theme 3 Microbiology of diabetic foot ulcers
