Welcome to BattleX - Manipulating the fight between human host cells and intracellular pathogens


The goal of the BattleX project is to combine accurate genome-scale models of both host and pathogen that will pave the way for an integrated comprehensive understanding of infectious diseases as a rational basis to develop urgently needed control strategies. It is a Research, Technology and Development (RTD) project, funded by SystemsX.ch, the Swiss Initiative in Systems Biology. 

We aim to develop novel strategies to combat infections; specifically, to identify novel targets/target combinations in metabolism for control of shigellosis, focusing on one infection model, intracellular Shigella infection of human cells. This model is medically relevant and offers unique advantages for a systems approach. 

BattleX Research Groups

BattleX is made up of consortium of seven research groups, six based in Switzerland and one in Iceland.   They bring together outstanding expertise in a wide range of complementary research in order to provide the framework for the success of this ambitious project.
