Lab team moved to the new CIGL building


In December 2020 most of our lab team moved to the newly established laboratories and offices at the Center for Infections and Genomics of the Lung (CIGL). Great effort was made to move the equipment in record-breaking time. Thanks a lot to all helping hands.

Now the long-awaited lab space and new equipment are available to proceed with our research in an inspiring surrounding with many working groups of our network together in one place.
