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

Research Topics:
  • Pneumocystis basic biology: molecular and cellular bases of Pneumocystis replication mechanisms
  • Natural history of pneumocystoses: molecular taxonomy, transmission, host specificity, life cycle
  • Circulation of Pneumocystis species in ecosystems-1: role of immunocompetent hosts
  • Circulation of Pneumocystis species in ecosystems-2: molecular detection in wild mammals
  • Impact of Pneumocystis infection on COPD and other pulmonary pathological conditions
  • Pathophysiology of cryptosporidiosis: Cryptosporidium induced epithelial changes
  • Molecular epidemiology and molecular taxonomy of cryptosporidioses
  • Molecular epidemiology of emergent fungal diseases Fungal phylogeny, mainly on the basis of superoxide dismutase (SOD) polymorphism
  • Impact of fungal infection on Cystic Fibrosis (CF) and other chronic pulmonary pathological conditions


Organisms studied:
  • Aspergillus spp.
  • Cryptosporidium spp.
  • Pneumocystis jirovecii
  • Pneumocystis spp.
  • Scedosporium


Special methods / technologies:
  • Genomic and transcriptomic methods
  • Original in vivo and in vitro models. Ultrastructural methods
  • Genetic population approaches


Suggestions for potential research cooperations:
Our team has big experience in medical parasitology and mycology.

A significative part of our activity is developed in either a clinical or industrial contexts.

We dispose of original, reproducible models of experimental pneumocystosis or cryptosporidiosis.

Pneumocystosis models are currently used to test new molecules (collaboration with industrial groups)
