About us


The virology group works with positive strand RNA viruses of the family Flaviviridae  and Noroviruses.

Main focus of research are RNA replication, virion morphogenesis and virus-host interactions.

Cell Biology

The main focus in cell biology is on embryonic and induced pluripotent stem cells as in vitro model systems to study mechanisms of cell differentiation, including cell-matrix and cell-virus interactions.

Another central aspect is the molecular and functional analysis of connective tissue in several human disorders - especially in wound healing and sclerotic skin diseases.

UN Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, UN member states agreed to 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. Our work contributes towards the following SDG(s):

  • SDG 3 - Good Health and Well-being
