Our research relates to the field of Molecular Infection Biology. We are principally interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms governing physiology and infection-associated processes in Gram-positive bacterial pathogens. We use a combination of genetic, genomic, molecular, biochemical, physiological and cell infection approaches to study mechanisms of gene expression at the transcriptional and post-transcriptional level in horizontal gene transfer, adaptation to stress, physiology or virulence. In particular, we do research on CRISPR, the adaptive immune system that protects bacteria against invading genetic elements; the small regulatory RNAs that interfere with bacterial pathogenicity; protein quality-control that regulates bacterial adaptation, physiology and virulence; and the mechanisms of bacterial recognition by immune cells.


We are always looking for highly motivated and enthusiastic bachelor and master students, PhD students and Postdocs who would like to join our affiliated Department of Regulation in Infection Biology (RIIB) at the Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology (MPIIB) in Berlin, Germany. Please follow the links for more information.

Emmanuelle Charpentier about MIMS (2015):
“A sense of high-level education and high-level research, a respect for excellent research, an understanding of support for basic research, for long—term training of PhD students and understanding that good research also comes with time, good working conditions, a sense of community joining forces and reduced administrative burden, respect for junior scientists.”
