Here you will find information about Research groups in the PathoGenoMics fields from the ERA-NET partner countries (Austria, Finland, France, Hungary, Israel, Latvia, Portugal, Slovenia and Spain).
This information is supposed to support cooperation between researchers from different European countries
and thus enhance the development of a European Research Area for PathoGenoMics .


The following information is available and can be searched for:

  • researcher names
  • Institution of the respective researcher, city and country of his/her institution

Name: Prof. Dr. Hanski, Emanuel
Institution: Department of Clinical Microbiology, The Hebrwe University Hadassah Medical School
City: Jerusalem Zip: 91120
Country: Israel Phone: +972-2-6758196
    Fax: +972-2-6434170


Research Topics:
Bacterial pathogenesis, group A streptococcus, innate immunity, gene regulation, quorum sensing Emanuel Hanski is studying invasive strains of group A streptococcus, bacteria that causes necrotizing fasciitis, also known as the flesh-eating disease. He is focusing on the identification of factors related to bacterial virulence and their mode of regulation. Identification of these factors and learning how virulence is regulated may lead to better prevention and treatment of this life-threatening disease in humans.


Organisms studied:
  • Streptococci


Special methods / technologies:


Suggestions for potential research cooperations:
Signature tagged mutagenesis, murine model of human invasive group A streptococcus diseases, in vitro and in vivo IL-8 degradation by ScpC protease
