Research group Johannes Nemeth

Tuberculosis remains one of the most infectious diseases world wide. The main focus of our group is the host response during infection and disease with Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB).

We use a wide range of different biological read outs to investigate MTB infection phenotypes. By integrating systems biology-based high throughput approaches (transcriptomics, proteomics) with clinically important phenotypes, we aim to develop novel diagnostic approaches and to identify targets for antibiotic- independent, host directed therapies.
