Major research interests include:

  • research of epidemiology of infectious diseases of animals in production and breeding stock, on combating them by means of the latest available diagnostic and analytical models as well as current trends
  • studies of the occurrence and effects of infections in cattle herds: IBD / IPV, BVDV, Coxiella burnetti as well as microorganisms causing respiratory infections (PI-3, BRSV, adeno- and reoviruses); infections of the cattle gastrointestinal tract ( E. coli, rota- and coronavirus)
  • studies of the occurrence and effects of Chlamydia spp. (Chlamydia suis, Chlamydia abortus), Neospora caninum, and Ostertagia ostertagii in farm animals
  • evaluation of infectious background of ocular and respiratory diseases in cats and dogs resulting from infections caused by FHV1, FCV, Mycoplasma felis, Chlamydia felis, Bordetella bronchiseptica, CHV-1 as well as the properties of bacterial biofilm formation and its role in disease processes.
  • research of Staphylococcus aureus carriage in domestic cats and the analysis of risk factors of these infections to public health
  • equine research involves the occurrence of infections caused by Streptococcus equi and the relationship between environmental and climatic conditions and the frequency of carriage occurrence
  • study of tick-borne diseases like: lyme disease, anaplasmosis, and monocytic ehrlichiosis in susceptible species
