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: Ao. Univ.Prof. Dr. Duchene, Michael
Address: Währinger Gürtel 18-20
Institution: Dept. of Specific Prophylaxis and Tropical Medicine, Center for Physiology and Pathophysiology
City: Wien Zip: A-1090
Country: Austria Phone: +43-1-4277-64874


Research Topics:
The main project is to understand the activity of known chemotherapeuticals (e.g. metronidazole, miltefosine) on the molecular level. This is investigated with microarray and proteomics methods. A second interest is the humoral immune response to microorganisms. A third cooperative project deals with the molecular processes during cyst formation.


Organisms studied:
  • Acanthamoeba castellanii
  • Entamoeba histolytica
  • Giardia intestinalis
  • Trichomonas vaginalis


Special methods / technologies:
Proteomics (2-DE)


Suggestions for potential research cooperations:
Modulation of host immune response by parasite factors.
