Focus on research

Infectious Diseases, University of Antwerp

The study of infectious disease encompasses a wide range of topics, ranging from

  • fundamental research on the molecular mechanisms involved in infectious diseases and immune responses, over
  • the development of new therapeutic approaches for infectious diseases, to
  • surveillance studies on the emergence and containment of microbial resistance.

The overall aim is to apply a highly multidisciplinary approach to develop innovative therapeutic approaches based on a detailed understanding of the different processes involved in infectious diseases.

In many of these topics, the University of Antwerp has played an important and even pioneering role. For instance, our research groups were the first worldwide to demonstrate that antibiotic use is the main reason for the emergence of antibiotic resistance.

A large number of research teams are involved in highly multidisciplinary projects, in which combined

  • microbiological,
  • immunological,
  • mathematical-biological,
  • statistical,
  • economical,
  • societal and
  • epidemiological

expertise is bundled into an integrated approach, which facilitates research according to the “From Patient to Bedside and Back” principle. Moreover, many of these projects are performed in an internationally highly competitive context, with important partnerships with hospitals, industry and the Institute for Tropical Medicine.

Infectious Diseases is one of the 9 frontline research domains of the University of Antwerp.
