Immune Responses to Intracellular Pathogens

The common goal of these projects is to increase the knowledge about cellular immune responses in veterinary species and to improve agricultural safety and animal health. We focus on cytokine responses that are induced by different intracellular pathogens. To simultaneously detect multiple cytokines at the protein level in different host tissues, we use and develop new analytical tools for assessing stimulation of cellular immunity by intracellular pathogens.
