EDGE – Initial Training Network providing cutting-EDGE knowlEDGE on Herpes Virology and Immunology. Key research aims of EDGE are to improve the basic understanding of the interactions between herpesviruses and host cells and to uncover implications for the clinical outcome of infections as well as development of vaccines. EDGE will provide a comprehensive and cross-disciplinary structured curriculum for doctoral students in the fields of virology and immunology.
Evaluating RNA/DNA bound proteins across species. A multinational team aims to identify conserved defense mechanisms against viruses. Hereby, the researchers hope to discover candidate mechanisms that can be used for future antiviral therapeutic approaches. See a short video of our PostDoc Matthias Habjan explaining the aim of this intriguing enterprise!
