Serotype epidemiology of Streptococcus pneumoniae

Our Institute has been hosting the Swiss National Center for Pneumococci since its inception 2002. The Center, funded by the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH), provides a representative and prospective surveillance of the circulating pneumococcal serotypes and their resistance to antibiotics. Our group performs epidemiological analyses of the circulating serotypes. Please refer to the publications below to learn more about our analyses
