Molecular Virology and Gene Therapy
The division Molecular Virology and Gene Therapy aims at developing novel therapeutics and diagnostics starting from basic research into the molecular cause of disease and employing the most advanced biomedical technologies. Research can be basic, applied or technological; in all cases our research aims at future applications in medicine.
Major disease areas are AIDS and Parkinson's disease. Other interests are gene therapy of cystic fibrosis, cancer, multiple sclerosis and stroke. We envisage small molecule, gene and cell therapy.
