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

Research Topics:
Our research is focused on the evaluation of the prevalence, antimicrobial resistance profiles, virulence determinants involved on the enterococcal pathogenesis, and epidemiological and evolutionary aspects among contemporary’s enterococcal isolates recovered from infection products at the hospital setting and from colonization (including both healthy people and high risk patients). In addition we are interested on the nasopharyngeal and oropharyngeal colonization of pre-school children by beta- haemolytic streptococci.


Organisms studied:
  • Beta-haemolytic streptococci
  • Enterococcus spp


Special methods / technologies:
Microbiology and molecular biology methods, bioinformatics tools
