  • Man, mice, pigs, cattle, sheep, poultry
  • Host-pathogen interaction
  • Modulation of expression bacterial virulence factors by mucosal host cells and of mucosal defense mechanisms by the bacteria
  • Microbial recognition receptors
  • Influence on innate immunity, training and memory
  • Colonization factors and their receptors
  • Vaccination and passive immunisation
  • Natural antimicrobials
