The HPI

The institute's mission statement: „The HPI investigates the biology of human pathogenic viruses. It is our aim to unravel the molecular mechanisms that control viral life cycles and virus induced pathogenesis. This research will provide novel targets and therapeutic approaches for established and emerging viral disease.Learn more about the HPI.

Research Units

The Heinrich Pette Institute's research teams currently consist of four reserach units, three reserach groups and three independent junior research groups.
