Natural products are essential for our lives as mediators of biological communication. They are involved in the development of many infectious diseases and are among the most important sources of drugs, especially antibiotics. At Leibniz-HKI, natural product research and infection biology are closely linked. We want to find out how microorganisms produce pathogenic substances as well as active substances that can be used for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes.
