Meliodosis is a sever infectious disease caused by the bacterium Burkholderia pseudomallei. It is an important cause of sepsis in Northern Australia and Southeast Asia. Infection occurs through percutaneous inoculation via skin wounds, inhalation of aerosols or ingestion via drinking water. The aim of Tassili Weehuizen’s research is to increase our insight into the interaction between B. pseudomallei and the innate immune system, thereby unraveling the pathogenesis of this fatal disease.
