Pharmaceutical Biology

Our group uses biological sources for the development of effective medicines, especially in the field of infectious diseases. As sources of natural products with antibiotic, anti-infective and immunomodulatory effects, we mainly use plants, algae and fungi. In addition, various methods of extraction, natural product isolation, microbiology, cell culture and natural product analysis are used. Furthermore, the residue analysis of antibiotics and heavy metals is another focus of our work. In cooperation with internal and external cooperation partners, we are on the search for novel lead structures of biogenic origin in the fight against multi-resistant pathogens.
