Viruses are tiny pathogens that threaten humans and animals in great diversity and lead to diseases. Understanding their infection mechanisms, diagnosing them and developing approaches for targeted prevention (vaccines) and therapy (antiviral molecules) are central concerns of our research group.
With our virological, cell biological and molecular biological experience and infrastructure we offer the cultivation, production and detection of selected human pathogenic viruses. Direct and indirect detection methods are available for characterization and further investigation. On this basis, we develop virus-based technologies to make innovative therapies available.
