His group exhibits substantial experience in identification and characterization of involved molecules of both, parasites and the human host, applying state-of-the-art molecular biological, biochemical and immunological techniques. The group provides considerable skill in handling of parasites and their biological products including ESPs, in clinical chemistry laboratory analysis, and in conducting field research in areas endemic for parasitic diseases in the tropics.
