Prof. Dr. Frank Buchholz, University Hospital Dresden

„The Medical Faculty at the University Hospital Dresden is the youngest of its kind in all of Germany. Perhaps that’s the reason why there’s such a strong team spirit here. This team spirit is so uplifting for everyone here that it makes many things possible which I don’t think is happening anywhere else. The cooperation between biologists and physicians is particularly fantastic. Since I moved with my family from San Francisco to Dresden in 2002, the research landscape has developed considerably in an international comparison – which is also due to the numerous excellence clusters found here. The special atmosphere and the superb infrastructure mutually stimulate and inspire each other. Here, not only the general conditions for research are favorable, but the city is also a great place to live in and very family friendly.“



Background:


Together with researchers from Hamburg, the work group headed by Prof. Buchholz has developed an enzyme that is able to cut HI viruses from the genetic material like molecular scissors. With this so called genome surgery, it is possible to heal HIV infections for the first time ever. The method can be used also for other genetic diseases.
