Projects funded by Federal States and Fonds


Deciphering the pathomechanisms of bacterial-viral coinfections with new biomedical models


This project is funded by the Federal State Mecklenburg-Pomerania with funds of the European Social Fund (ESF) as part of the Excellence-Initiative Federal State Mecklenburg-Pomerania from January 2017 to March 2021. Thereby our group is cooperating with 13 partners from the University of Greifswald, University Medicine Greifswald, Friedrich-Loeffler- Federal Research Institute for Animal Health, and University Medicine of Rostock.

In frame of this projects our group focus on the establishment, optimization, and application of Ms-based analysis of ubiquitination.

Modulare oral applicable multi-vaccines – Principal solutions


Three institutes in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern:

            the Friedrich-Loeffler-Institute – Insel Riems,

            the Institute for Microbiology of the University of Greifswald

            and the Leibnitz Institute for Farm Animal Biology Dummerstorf 

will work together in the development of a new system for the vaccination of fish. These vaccines could be adapted to the respective fish species (salmon and trout, carp or perch) and the corresponding pathogens. At the same time, the vaccine is made safer by combining important parts of bacteria and viruses in non-reproducible carriers. Further, the uptake of the vaccine by the fish will be tested. This will result in precise rules for the fish farmers for the application of the oral vaccine in the industry.

The project is funded by the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) and the state Mecklenburg-Vorpommern from July 2017 to July 2020.
