Hannover Medical School,

Institute of Virologie

Hannover Medical School (MHH), founded in 1965, is one of the world's leading university medical centres. Our outstanding success in interdisciplinary collaboration both within the MHH and with extramural scientific institutions is reflected in the fact that the MHH is the German medical university with the largest volume of grant funding. The Institute of Virology hosts 7 research teams funded by the DFG, the EU, Volkswagenstiftung, Wilhelm-Sander-Stiftung and the BMBF and working on important human pathogenic viruses such as the KSHV, HCMV, HSV, HCV, HIV, and adenoviruses.
In the Sodeik team, we study the herpes simplex virus (HSV) infection of epithelial cells and neurons using digital life-cell imaging and dual-colour fluorescent viral strains, electron microscopy, and biochemical assays reconstituting key aspects of the viral life cycle. Our success in our scientific endeavours’ is built on curiosity, innovation, and diverse approaches to do science. We offer a nice, dynamic team driven by collaborative efforts.
