PHB Infectious Diseases Cluster

Infections are associated with significant morbidity and mortality. The spectrum and clinical course of infections reaches from colonization up to severe immediately life threatening infectious diseases, respectively. Hence, the course is highly variable and dependent on the pathogen but also on the host. The complex interplay determines the outcome. Therefore, infectious diseases are an ideal topic for personalized medicine.

PHB Infectious Diseases Cluster Bioinformatic Expert

In October 2019, Dr. Alfredo Mari joined the PHB team to support Infectious Diseases research activities. Alfredo is a computational biologist and is hosted at the DBM bioinformatics core facility. For the Infectious Disease Cluster, he conducts bioinformatic analyses on research projects of epidemiological relevance, mostly within the comparative genomics and the clinical bacteriology field. Alfredo is working closely with the diagnostic unit of Clinical Microbiology Department of University Hospital Basel (USB), as well as other public and academic partners.
