Lead by Director Jörg Vogel, scientists at the HIRI develop RNA-centric approaches to unravel the complex mechanisms associated with infectious diseases.
Exploiting RNA knowledge for new diagnostics, preventives, and anti-infectives
Developing innovative delivery techniques for RNA-based interventions
Understanding RNA-based mechanisms in virulence and host defence
Identifying novel regulatory RNAs with key roles in pathogenesis
Resolving the complexity and heterogeneity of infection processes at the single-cell level
With its integrated scientific concept and modern infrastructure, the HIRI provides a vibrant research environment for both established and young scientists. Combined with the resources of the HZI Braunschweig and the University of Würzburg, the HIRI creates unique opportunities to effectively convert knowledge into applications.
