Viruses are vehicles which transmit biological information, reprogramming the function of human, animal or plant cells to produce progeny virions. Viral pathogens are very small, often with a very simple structure. Nevertheless, viral pathogens like HIV or the hepatitis C virus (HCV) threaten the health of many millions of individuals. The institute comprises three research groups that focus on hepatitis viruses (HCV, HEV), HIV-1, respiratory syncytial virus (hRSV) and Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) and ist based at the TWINCORE in Hannover.
