Gene Expression & Gene Medicine

The research in gene medicine encompasses discoveries in basic science as well as applications in biomedicine. The work addresses the study of basic gene-regulation mechanisms important in human health and disease as well as the development of new approaches for influencing gene expression at the cellular level and methods for the cell-specific delivery of genes or gene-regulatory substances in an individual.

Individual group activities include retrovirus biology, RNA biology, the interferon system, drug delivery and RNA and DNA nanotechnology, utilising a broad spectrum of techniques in cell-free systems and cultured cells as well as disease animal models.

The section is actively involved in technology transfer, industrial collaboration, and the establishment of start-up companies.
