Methusalem Grant Holder Herman Goossens

Research on the containment of antibiotic resistance and the immune response of prophylactic and therapeutic vaccines

The current VAXINFECTIO research is the result of the complimentary work in the multidisciplinary fields of microbiology, vaccinology, and immunology. In the past 6 years, the Methusalem grant has significantly contributed to the development and international recognition in those major fields.

The future Methusalem research is aimed at further development of the integrated vaccine and microbiological research, with a special focus on increasing the understanding of the immune response in prophylactic and therapeutic vaccines (including tumor vaccines) and the containment of antibiotic resistance.
