University of Greifswald
Founded in 1456, the University of Greifswald is one of the oldest universities in Germany. Today it is an internationally recognized research university offering excellent study conditions in modern buildings with an outstanding infrastructure for research-oriented teaching. Top-level research results from the intensive interdisciplinary cooperation of the faculties with renowned regional, national and international research partners.
The university's scientists have access to an excellent research infrastructure, including two inter-faculty research buildings of national importance and an outstanding (meta-)proteomics platform. Infection research at the university is based on interdisciplinary and cross-faculty research networks dealing with important bacterial pathogens, diagnostics and therapy of infections, bacto-viral co-infections, the spread of antimicrobial resistance, human and environmental microorganisms and bats as a potential pathogen reservoir.
‘With One Health, we have identified a highly topical and relevant field of research that uniquely unites the expertise of all partner institutions and could put Greifswald on the map as a location for research. Researchers at the University of Greifswald have successfully investigated topics related to One Health for many years, from the pathomechanisms, diagnostics and treatment of bacterial infections, to the spread of antimicrobial resistances, and bats as a potential reservoir for the emergence of new pathogens. In addition to this, the University has excellent expertise in the fields of environmental research, proteomics, environmental law and healthcare management, which perfectly complement the research to be performed at HIOH.’
