Hans-Georg Kräusslich graduated from Medical School in Munich completed his doctoral thesis on viral protein processing in 1985. He then did a postdoc on poliovirus at State University of New York at Stony Brook. In 1989, he established his own group at the German Cancer Research Center in Heidelberg working on assembly and replication of HIV. In 1995, he became full professor and Head of Department at the Heinrich-Pette-Institute in Hamburg, directing the Institute from 1996 to 1999. Since 2000, he has been the Head of Virology at Heidelberg University and since 2003 Director of the Department of Infectious Diseases. Currently he is the Dean of the Medical Faculty and coordinates a DFG Comprehensive Research Center on “Integrative Analysis of Pathogen Replication and Spread”. His contribution includes ~250 papers in international, peer-reviewed journals.
His research focuses on different aspects of retroviral biology, especially the formation and architecture of human immunodeficiency virus, the role of lipids in virus entry and egress, and the role of innate immunity during virus infection.
PhD students and postdocs are invited to sign up for lunch with the speaker (first 5 to contact me). If you would like to meet the speaker in Viikki on Monday, please let me know.
