Welcome to the website of the
Erlanger Center for Infection Research (ECI)
The ECI is an official interdisciplinary center of the Friedrich-Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU). It represents a consortium of institutions and researchers with a broad spectrum of scientific expertise, ranging from (bio)inorganic, medicinal and pharmaceutical chemistry, basic infection biology, microbiology, virology, immunology and pathology to clinical infectious diseases.
The ECI provides a strong link between basic, preclinical and clinical research. Its main goal is the acceleration of the transition from in vitro and in vivo research results into clinical application.
