Microbial Safety and Security

Safety and security in the medical health domain deal with all kinds of issues related to the microbial safety and health of patients and professionals in the medical domain. Of particular interest are the cross LDE-university domains of patient microbial safety and the prevention of transmission of pathogens . To this end we combine the knowledge of microbiology, technology and innovation, human behavior and the medical domain.


  • Develop risk moments for transmission by hands of health care workers
  • Develop guidelines and tools to build a microbial safe hospital
  • Determine if and where technical measures can be taken such as sensors, cameras, physical barriers are needed to prevent transmission.
  • Develop tools for better outbreak  management and emergency response (this in cooperation with other domains within CSS)
