With increasing antibiotic resistance, bacterial infections remain an important threat to human health. To identify novel targets for therapeutic intervention our group investigates host-bacteria interactions by innovative mass spectrometry (MS)-based approaches. Using Listeria monocytogenes as an intracellular bacterial model pathogen, we focus on the analysis of ubiquitin-like protein modifications of the immune system, in particular ISG15.
To showcase the world-class scientific research of the VIB Proteomics Core, you can discover their scientific papers in more detail.
We are always on the lookout for highly motivated colleagues to join our team. If you are interested, please contact us.
The VIB Proteomics Core can only thrive thanks to the dedication and commitment of its people, no matter what their function or seniority.
To stay up to date in rapidly developing fields, scientists regularly interact with (international) colleagues. Conferences and other (scientific) events are an excellent way to facilitate such a continent-spanning knowledge exchange.
