Research is carried out at three sites

  • Main building in down town Munich near "Sendlinger Tor"

  • Max von Pettenkofer Institute, Research Virology, Feodor-Lynen-Str. 23, Campus Grosshadern

 
Main issues are

  1. DNA viruses (herpes viruses, adeno viruses): cloning and mutagenesis of herpesvirus genomes, tropism, trafficking, nucleo-zytoplasmatic transport of capsids, activation and inhibition of cellular genes by viral proteins and miRNAs, systems biology of the infected cell, antiviral therapy through dominant negative mutants and small molecules, vaccine development.
  2. RNA viruses (paramyxo-, rhabdo-, coronaviruses). Reverse genetics, innate immunity, interferon escape, neurobiology, neurotracing vectors, systems biology.
