Welcome to the Department for Molecular & Medical Virology

We are an international team of scientist, veterinarians, physicians and technical staff led by Prof. Dr. Eike Steinmann. We use cutting-edge technologies to investigate molecular and medical aspects of the hepatitis E virus, hepaciviruses and of virus transmission.

The Department for Molecular & Medical Virology led by Prof. Steinmann is part of the medical faculty at Ruhr University Bochum since April 2018. We participate in the virological training of medical and science students with lectures, seminars and practical courses.
