A comprehensive dissection of pneumococcal-host interactions (PNEUMOPATH)

The Pneumopath project is an EU-funded, health-themed, collaborative research project within the seventh framework programme, awarded to a consortium of organisations, grant agreement number: HEALTH-F3-2009-222983.

The aim of the project was to comprehensively study the host-pathogen interactions during infection of Streptococcus pneumonaie with the objective of finding new targets for diagnosis and treatment.  The project was launched in March 2009 and, following a six month extension, ran for 42 months. It built on the existing expertise gained by the project partners and on the knowledge gained through previous EU-funded research in earlier framework programmes, namely PREVIS, LMTOCHE, PNEUMOPEP and DRESP2.

The project was undertaken by a  multi-disciplinary consortium of European partners from both industry and the academic community.

The project was coordinated by the University of Leicester and managed by Professor Peter Andrew, Head of the Department of Infection, Immunity and Inflammation.
