Areas of expertise

Biosafety

Biosafety

Biosafety deals with highly pathogenic agents and more generally with population health protection in the microbiological domain.

Environmental Biotechnologies

Environmental Biotechnologies

Focuses on developing chemical-physical and biotechnological processes for wastewater treatment and biomass energy recovery.

Vector Ecology

Vector Ecology

Mosquitoes and ticks are potential vectors of numerous infectious bacterial and viral diseases.

 Microbial Ecology

Microbial Ecology

It deals with microbial diversity in different ecosystems and the effect they have on the environment. It includes the study of biogeochemical cycles, biodiversity mainly in aquatic ecosystems in which microorganisms have a major influence on the recycling of substances.

 Hygiene and environment

Hygiene and environment

It deals with the characterization of organisms isolated from different environments (natural and built) by methods of classical microbiology, molecular biology, metagenomics, transcriptomics and proteomics with the application of MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry.
