5. Describa brevemente la labor desarrollada por la instalación en materia de defensa biológica, con indicación de los tipos de microorganismos(9) y/o toxinas estudiados, así como las investigaciones al aire libre sobre los aerosoles biológicos

The Institute of Medical Microbiology at the University of Zurich is the Regional Competence Center for the primary analysis of bacteriological samples suspicious of a bioterror-related background. This represents an additional and not a continuous task of the diagonstics laboratory proficient in bacteriology, mycology and serology. Research focusses on vaccine and antibiotic development, protein structure analysis, host-pathogen interaction (Legionella, Mycobacteria), antibiotic resistance mechanisms and general aspects of translation.
