Research areas

The DZIF partner site in Heidelberg co-coordinates the Hepatitis and Infections of the Immunocompromised Host research fields. Alongside this, scientists from Heidelberg coordinate the biobanking unit within the 2021 newly introduced infrastructure Bioresources, Biodata and Digital Health - with an emphasis on tissue banks. One focus of the research activities is on imaging methods in order to render infections visible in various complex systems ranging from clonal cells to mixed cell populations through to organs and animal models. Research on HIV is also conducted here.
