Our lab is studying various molecular- and cell biological aspects of the retroviral replication strategy. The current research interests of our lab are the analysis of viral and cellular protein interactions involved in viral particle morphogenesis and virus entry as well as interactions of retroviruses with the innate immune system. The functional analysis of retroviral capsids and glycoproteins and their role in virus release and infection of target tissues is another research focus. The insights of these processes obtained from our basic research efforts are utilized for the development of new retroviral vector systems, which we apply in cooperation with various partners for gene transfer into different target tissues. 
The Molecular Retrovirology Lab (The FoamyLab) is located at the
Institute of Virology  of the Medical Faculty Carl Gustav Carus  at the  Technische Universität Dresden. Our labs are located at the Medical Theoretical Center, near the University Hospital and the  Biotechnology Center (BIOTEC) of the TU Dresden as well as the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (MPI-CBG).
