Our research is mainly focused on ecology and eco-epidemiology of zoonotic microorganisms with main emphasis on emerging and re-emerging pathogens. The role of endotherm vertebrates (host of pathogenic agents) and haematophagous arthtropods (biological vectors) in circulation ot zoonotic pathogens as well as natural and soci-economic factors driving emergence of particular infections are intensively explored.
Reasearch facility in Valtice is well-equipped with state-of-the-art molecular devices as well as modern animal facility fulfilling all safety measures which are needed for handling with laboratory animals.
