OUR MISSION

We use cutting edge technologies and methods to investigate how pathogens infect humans.

Research Focus
Together, we research the structure and function of pathogens in order to understand their interaction with the human body. This research facilitates the development of novel methods for combatting infectious diseases.

Collaboration
We use a collaborative, multidisciplinary and integrative approach to our work in an effort to answer relevant scientific questions.

Innovation
We use the best research facilities and infrastructures available to investigate the molecular mechanisms associated with infection. For this, we develop new tools and techniques.

Responsibility
We engage in an active dialogue with the scientific community, society, and industry about our research, which serves a civilian and peaceful purpose.

Empowerment
We empower the next generation of scientists to work boldly and collaboratively to tackle the complex problems of tomorrow.

Respect
We establish respectful working relationships that are founded upon mutual appreciation and regard for intellectual property. We encourage an open exchange of ideas.

Diversity
We create a setting in which every colleague can give their best, irrespective of nationality, age and gender. Diversity enhances creativity, drives innovation, provides new perspectives and enriches our working environment.
