IntraInf - Non-invasive photonic deciphering of complex polymicrobial infections in real-time

IntraInf wants to improve the investigation and diagnosis of intracellular bacterial pathogens. Within the project, a quantitative and dynamic picture of infection processes caused by obligatory intracellular pathogens such as Chlamydia spp.or Coxiella burnetii will be created. In order to distinguish the different infections states of the pathogens that differ on structural and molecular level, state of the art Raman spectroscopy and high resolution microscopy are used. Thus, important new insights into infections with one or more pathogens and the role of the different infection states will be gained.
