The main research focus of my group is the molecular and cell biology of virus infections. By studying Flaviviridae members (e.g. hepatitis C virus, Dengue virus, Zika virus) we aim to understand the cell biology of the different steps of the viral replication cycle and the impact on innate immune responses. We employ imaging, high-content screening and systems biology approaches.
