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
  • Contact data of the researcher (address, phone, email)
  • Research topics and studied microorganisms of the researcher
  • Special techniques applied by the researcher
  • Potential cooperation topics suggested by the researcher

Name: Dr. De Bolle, Xavier
Address: Professor et the University of Namur (FUNDP URBM - FUNDP 61 rue de Bruxelles 5000 Namur Belgium
Institution: University of Namur (URBM - FUNDP)
City: Namur Zip: 5000
Country: Belgium Phone:


Research Topics:
post-genomics, alpha-proteobacteria, Brucella, host-pathogen interactions, bacterial differentiation
  • identify effectors secreted by the intracellular pathogen Brucella melitensis inside the host cells
  • characterize the molecular mechanisms of bacterial differentiation of Brucella abortus


Organisms studied:
  • Brucella


Special methods / technologies:
ORFeomes & recombinational cloning, protein-protein interactions, subcellular localization, cellular & mice infections with Brucella, gene expression studies


Suggestions for potential research cooperations:
I'm interested to collaborate with other groups working on molecular mechanisms of host-bacteria interactions, particularly for intracellular pathogens
I'm also interested to collaborate with groups working on molecular mechanisms of differentiation in bacteria
