Infection biologists intensify Ebola research

previous next
The section Infection Research researches viruses like HIV, influenza (flu) and ebola and newly emerging viruses. Additionally, illnesses caused by bacteria and parasites are investigated.
The section Neuroscience researches the basics of cognitive performance in the central nervous system and neurodegenerative illnesses as well as control of movements and the visual perception.
Research in the section Organismic Primate Biology is focussed on evolutionary basics of social and mating systems, ecology, vocal communication, biology of stem cells, and genetics in primates.
