Staphylococcus aureus is a Janus-faced microorganism: on the one hand a dangerous pathogen both in and outside hospitals, on the other a frequent colonizer of the nose. There is also evidence that S. aureus may cause allergies. This magic triangle fascinates immunologists. We are using immunomics to obtain a panoramic view of the immune response directed at S. aureus in health and disease.
