Keywords

Clinical virology

Research interests

Our primary goal is to understand viral infection and replication pathways and to develop new and innovative diagnostic procedures in order to support clinical care. Viral infections in immunocompromised / immunosuppressed and guidance of immunosuprressive therapies as well as therapy of Hepatitis B / C and HIV.
