INSTITUTE OF APPLIED PHYSICS - Clinical Spectroscopic Diagnostics

Clinical Spectroscopic Diagnostics

The goal of our research is the development and application of new optical-spectroscopic methods for the characterization of physiological interactions during infections and sepsis. This involves a detailed characterization of the infection-causing pathogen (e.g. bacteria and fungi), its localization within host cells and its interaction with drugs, as well as the characterization of the host response (with a special focus on immune cells). The findings from the optical-spectroscopic experiments should help to provide a better insight into pathogenesis, but also contribute to the development of new and, above all, faster diagnostic procedures.
