Prof. Bauer is a member of several collaborative research groups in particular the LPI addressing the use of biophotonics for pathogen detection. They also study cellular functions in the continuum of infection, host response and the development of organ failure. He is chief-executive director of the Center for Sepsis Control Care (CSCC) at the Jena University Hospital.
Prof. Bauer heads a group addressing molecular mechanisms and prevention of organ failure in life-threatening infections. Key components of this research reflect strategies for early detection of pathogens and the ensuing immune response. Research interests include:
Prof. Bauer’s teaching covers aspects of pathophysiology and molecular aspects in critical care medicine with a focus on life-threatening infections:
The laboratories led by Prof. Bauer offer a full range of molecular biology techniques with special emphasis of transcriptome/array analysis and in vivo microscopy of solid organs, including:
