Elucidation of host-pathogen interactions in a rodent model of pneumonia. 01/01/2012 - 31/12/2015


Ventilator associated pneumonia is a major cause of mortality and morbidity in hospitalized patients. To study the etiopathogenesis of this disease, rodent pneumonia models will be developed and characterized using histopathology, microbiology, transciptomics and proteomics from both host and bacterium. Possible distinct pathogenic steps will be validated in human patient samples.
