Welcome to the Vettiger Lab at DMF-UNIL

We employ advanced imaging, genetics, and biochemistry tools to study fundamental aspects of bacterial cell envelope biogenesis. To this end we collaborate closely with the Navarro Lab.

Ultimately, our goal is to understand how bacteria grow and divide which may help to identify new targets for antimicrobial therapies.
