Since January 1st, 2017, the former “Institute of Virology and Antiviral Therapy” of the University Hospital Jena was included into the “Institute of Medical Microbiology” as the “Section Experimental Virology”. Prior to this, the “Institute of Virology and Antiviral Therapy” emanated from the fusion of the “Institute of Virology” and the “Institute of Antiviral Chemotherapy” in 2003. Beside the education of students, the main focus of research is on experiments with herpes viruses (varicella-zoster virus, herpes simplex virus), different picorna- and influenza viruses. Numerous scientific questions are analyzed with the help of biomolecular and cell biological methods as well as animal models. The “Section Experimental Virology” maintains extensive national and international collaborations.
