  • Identifying the best detection matrix for C. burnetii in flocks of small ruminants in Germany
    Evaluating the applicability of an adapted latent class regression model on diagnostic test results of multiple matrices
  • Evaluating the applicability of an adapted latent transition model on the perpetuated excretion of C. burnetii in flocks of small ruminants
  • Analyzing the risk for chronic fatigue syndrome after a human q fever outbreak
  • Analyzing the stakeholders' needs and expectations regarding provided guidelines and information concerning C. burnetii
