Welcome to the Section of Medical Microbiology. Medical Microbiology is a part of the Department of Laboratory Medicine in the Faculty of Medicine at Lund University and consists of the sections of Bacteriology and Virology.
Research at the Section of Bacteriology includes bacteriology, mycology and parasitology. We study the pathogenesis in experimental and natural infections, characterization of microorganisms and virulence factors, development of experimental vaccines and immuno- and DNA-based diagnostics, microbial metabolites and public health microbiology.
Research at the Section of Virology focuses on retroviruses, human and simian immunodeficiency virus (HIV and SIV, respectively).
