National Reference Center for Retroviruses

The National Reference Center (NRC) for Retroviruses was newly appointed on October 1, 2016. Our range of services in the field of retrovirology includes, among others, comprehensive retrovirological diagnostics, medical consultation in difficult cases related to HIV or HTLV infections, frequent exchange with public health authorities and quality assurance in the field of retrovirus diagnostics at both national and international level.

The activities of the NRC for Retroviruses are supported by basic, translational and clinical research projects on HIV at the Max von Pettenkofer-Institute.

Biannually, we publish a Retrovirus Bulletin in German. In this bulletin, current scientific and clinical topics from the entire spectrum of retrovirology are presented for a broad medical and scientific audience as well as individuals living with HIV.
