  • Antimicrobial resistance
  • Mycobacterial infections

Our research projects have in general a translational focus, but also applied and basic research aspects. Several of our research projects are conducted in collaboration with academic and clinical partners at a national and international level. We apply a wide range of methods, including automated fluorescence microscopes and next generation sequencing (NGS).
