I have worked on Francisella tularensis for more than 30 years and during this period published more than 130 papers related to the pathogen. My ongoing Francisella research is aimed to elucidate its virulence factors and to understand host mechanisms controlling tularemia. My research focus on elucidation of F. tularensis virulence mechanisms has also been the basis for the identification of suitable targets to obtain attenuated vaccine candidates. I am also actively involved in developing a F. tularensis vaccine. The work related to virulence mechanisms has a focus to elucidate mechanisms of the type VI secretion system of F. tularensis. More detailed description of the projects follow below.

My research is highly cited and in Google Scholar, I have in total 199 papers that have been cited 13,200 times, with an h-index of 68 and an i10-index of 140. I have been the supervisor of twelve post-docs and supervisor or co-supervisor of 18 PhD students.
