The microbiology research group is involved in various research projects.
The StaphNet project, financed by a grant of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft is characerising risk factors for Staphylococci in asymptomatic carriers and patients (www.african-german-staph.net) Other activities include epidemiology of other bacteria in the environment, such as in livestock, soil, water supply, and food.
The group has a good publication record, with publications on Staphylococci carriage in indeginous population, hospital aquired infections, and sickle cell disease. The samples are processed in a specialised laboratory.
We work closely with national reference center for Staphylococci at Münster University, Germany.
