The HKI is an internationally leading centre for the research of new natural products of microbial origin and for the infection biology of pathogenic fungi.Natural products determine the biological communication of microorganisms with each other as well as with plant and animal cells. The HKI is a world-leading academic research centre in the field of natural product research and infection biology of human-pathogenic fungi. Research outputs, collaborations and relationships for Leibniz Institute for Natural Product Research and Infection Biology
They are interested in the production and ecological function of microbial natural products and in the interactions of pathogenic microorganisms, especially fungi, with the host. To this end, we investigate the defence of the immune system against pathogens, the strategies of microorganisms to overcome it and the molecules involved
