Abstract:
The department of Pathology, Bacteriology and Poultry Diseases studies host-microbial interactions, antimicrobial resistance and several (non-)infectious diseases in various animal species.

The marine aspect of the research focuses on:
- Beneficial effects of pre- and probionts and their modes of action in marine larviculture;
- The etiology of skin ulcerations of flatfish in the North Sea;
- Evaluation of the impact of pulse fishing on a selection of marine fish and invertebrate species in the North Sea;
- Pathogenesis of bacterial infections in fish with a focus on the gill and gut as portal of entry;
- Microbial endocrinology.
