The Sixt lab strives to uncover the hid­den protective potential of pathogen-suppressed cellular defense path­ways, to identify the mo­lecular determinants of host de­fense and pathogenic countermeasures, and to find means to disturb their balance to the ben­efit of the host. Our main experimental model is the interaction of human cells with the obligate intracellular bacterial pathogen Chlamydia trachomatis.

ERASMUS, PhD, and PostDoc projects

We are constantly seeking highly motivated students and post-docs who would like to join our team. If you are interested in applying state-of-the-art tools in mo­lecular genetics to debunk the power of cell-autonomous immunity, please send me your CV and a short letter of motivation (preferentially as single PDF file) (email: This email address is being protected from spambots.
