Microbiology Group

for research on Gram-positive bacteria

The Microbiology Group at the Department of Biology is a productive research environment formed by closely interacting research groups with common interests and approaches, We do research on bacteria, particularly Gram-positive bacteria, and provide undergraduate teaching and postgraduate academic training in microbiology, molecular biology, and related topics.

The research projects of the group concern fundamental cellular and molecular aspects of Gram-positive bacteria, which are microbes of large medical, environmental and industrial importance. Our projects involve species of Bacillus, Enterococcus, Mycobacterium, Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, and Streptomyces. Contemporary scientific questions are addressed in the experimental work on for example cell an developmental biology, cell stress, pathogenesis. and biogenesis of respiratory systems.

Microbiology group

Carlsson Lab

My laboratory is focused on bacterial infection and inflammation. We study host-pathogen interactions to elucidate mechanisms of disease pathogenesis as well as fundamental aspects of immune regulation and function.

Flärdh Lab

We investigate fundamental problems in bacterial cell biology using Streptomyces venezuelae as our main model organism.

Hederstedt Lab

We study bacterial heme protein and endospore biogenesis.

von Wachenfeldt Lab

We investigate molecular mechanisms underlying stress response and adaptation in bacteria.
