Innate immune defence against intracellular pathogens
What are the host immune defence mechanisms that control intracellular infections and how are these subverted by pathogens?
Conquering the fortress: New strategies for the treatment of tuberculosis
Can we exploit the cell death machinery of the host to develop new host-directed anti-TB treatments?
Nitric oxide in defence against mycobacterial infection
Can we enhance the capacity of host immune cells to kill mycobacteria via production of reactive nitrogen species?
Inflammafish: Cross-talk between inflammation and autophagy in tuberculosis
Effective host defence against tuberculosis bacteria depends on a properly balanced level of inflammation. The Inflammafish project uses zebrafish larvae to study how autophagy controls this inflammation and vice versa.
Staphylomics: Identifying host factors involved in staphylococcal infection
How can Staphylococcus aureus bacteria subvert the host immune system?
TRANSAUTOPHAGY: European network for multidisciplinary research and translation of autophagy knowledge
TRANSAUTOPHAGY is a European COST action to promote multidisciplinary research on autophagy and translation of knowledge to applications.
FishForPharma: Training network on zebrafish infection models for pharmaceutical screens
How can zebrafish models be used to gain a better understanding of host-pathogen interaction mechanisms and to screen new drugs for infectious disease treatment?
ImageInLife: Training European experts in multilevel bioimaging, analysis and modelling of vertebrate development
How can novel bioimaging technologies and vertebrate model species be used to gain a better understanding of early cellular behaviours with the ultimate goal to increase our understanding of human development and disease processes?
Cleaning up tuberculosis and salmonella infections
The cellular recycling system in zebrafish is capable of eating harmful bacteria and thus resist infections such as tuberculosis and salmonellosis. That is written by Leiden biologists from the group of Annemarie Meijer. Stimulating this form of defence could be used in new treatment methods against…
