Infectious diseases pose a considerable threat to humans as well as animals and can cause economic damage, especially regarding swine farming. For the development of new therapeutic and prophylactic approaches, knowledge of the circulating pathogen types as well as the interaction of viral pathogens with their host on a molecular biological and immunological level is of most importance. Our research focuses on infections with rotavirus, circovirus, procine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus and other porcine viral enteral pathogens.
