Immunopathology of Virus Infections

Excellence initiative CiViA is funded!

Our colleagues from Aarhus University and us got funding for our joint excellence initiative Center for Immunology of Viral infections (CiViA). The Danish National Research Foundation will sponsor this initiative for up to 10 years!

In CiViA, we aim to discover novel antiviral mechanisms and unravel the decisive factors between protective and pathological immune responses. Moreover, besides providing spectacular infrastructure, we will team up with philosophers to prepare for the next paradigm shifts. We look forward to exciting times ahead!

Congratulations Dr Bergant!

At the end of May, another doctor graduated from our lab – congratulations to Valter (aka Dr Bergant)! Valter has conducted fantastic research during his PhD and wrote his thesis on “Data-driven host-directed antiviral drug repurposing against emerging pathogens”. He gave a great presentation at his defence that his committee would like to add infinite “summa” in front of “cum laude”. A huge well done from all of us! We are looking forward to your future contribution to the scientific community!

Multilevel proteomics reveals host perturbations by SARS-CoV-2 and SARS-CoV

Attenuation of SARS-CoV-2 replication and associated inflammation by concomitant targeting of viral and host cap 2′-O-ribose methyltransferases

mRNA 3’UTR lengthening by alternative polyadenylation attenuates inflammatory responses and correlates with virulence of Influenza A virus
