We study pathogens that are the causative agents of human diseases like HIV, tuberculosis, hepatitis, encephalomyelitis, anthrax, flu, pneumonia and tooth decay.


We study pathogens that are the causative agents of human diseases like HIV, tuberculosis, hepatitis, encephalomyelitis, anthrax, flu, pneumonia and tooth decay.


We examine how the immune system controls or – as is often the case – fails to control infections with these pathogens and we design and test vaccines against these pathogens.



We study fundamental mechanisms of cell biology, structural biology, transcription, translation, replication and genetics and determine how processes affect the development and progression of infectious disease as well as chronic diseases.
