Medizinische Klinik I

Department of Internal Medicine 1, Johann Wolfgang Goethe University Hospital Frankfurt, Germany.

Our research group studies basic and translational research aspects of chronic liver diseases with a special focus on the pathogenesis and treatment of infection with hepatitis C virus, hepatitis B virus, and hepatocellular carcinoma associated with these viruses. Our current interest focuses on the molecular mechanisms that mediate treatment failure and progression of these diseases. In addition, we are studying mechanisms of innate immune responses in viral hepatitis and their impact on treatment failure and disease progression. Our lab is well equipped and has established all relevant methods of cell culture, molecular biology and virology including methods for generation of high-throughput data such as diverse array technologies, protein expression and crystallization. We offer a special expertise in state of the art techniques of molecular virology, structure biology, signaling, and genomics.
