New Research Group
Maximilian Muenchhoff has just arrived at the Gene Center. Max works on the host-virus interactions of the two pandemic pathogens HIV-1 and SARS-CoV-2. At the Gene Center, he takes over the laboratory space from Prof. Conzelmann, who retired at the end of 2022. Like him, Max is also a member of the Max von Pettenkofer Institute. Welcome, Max!
Muenchhoff lab - Host-Virus Interactions of Pandemic Pathogens
We are interested in host-virus interactions of the two pandemic pathogens HIV-1 and SARS-CoV-2. We aim to decipher immunological signatures of differential disease phenotypes in cohorts of SARS-CoV-2- and HIV-1-infected individuals. Building on our platform for genomic surveillance of SARS-CoV-2 we are investigating its evolution in adaptation to the human host. Our group is developing state-of-the-art methods to study HIV persistence.
