Infectious diseases, caused by various microorganisms, have major medical, social and economic consequences and are a major cause of death worldwide. Analyzing the ways of how the immune system recognizes and reacts towards pathogenic infections resulting in eradication or control is relevant for our basic understanding of complex host-pathogen interactions.

The research in the Oxenius lab focuses on the in vivo analysis of host-pathogen interactions for a variety of relevant pathogens. The main research goal is the elucidation of molecular, cellular and systemic mechanisms of innate and adaptive immune defense against acute and persistent viral or bacterial infections in relation to the dynamics of the infecting pathogen. Specific topics are:
