Pharmaceutical Biology

Pharmaceutical Biology addresses the biological foundations of pharmacy and their use in the development, production, control, processing and application of drugs. Here, biological sources are of particular importance for the development of new drugs.

Current topics

Pharmaceutical Biology

  • Extraction and analysis of pharmacologically active natural products from terrestrial and marine fungi, cyanobacteria, microalgae and higher plants
  • Antibiotics and heavy metal residue analysis
  • Analysis and biological testing of selected phytopharmaceuticals
  • Innovative cellular test systems
  • Cultivation of cyanobacteria, microalgae, fungi (marine and terrestrial) and mammalian cells

Pharmaceutical Microbiology

  • Detailed characterization of ESBL-producing Escherichia coli from human, animal and environmental sources in Africa
  • Examination of chicken meat for multidrug-resistant bacteria
  • Microevolution and transmission of multi-resistant germs
  • Non-resistance factors of multidrug-resistant pathogens such as biofilm formation, motility, bacterial fitness and tenacity, and their drug susceptibility
