Prof. Dr. Frank Kirchhoff received his initial training in Biology at the Georg-August-University in Göttingen. Subsequently, he carried out his research for his Diploma thesis at the German Primate Center in Göttingen with Prof. Dr. Hunsmann on the “isolation and characterization of a new HIV-2 clone to examine the negative regulatory factors of chimeras between HIV-2 and the HIV-1 envelope protein.” Thereafter, he received a postdoctoral fellowship from the Federal Ministry for Research and Technology (BMBF) for working with Prof. Dr. Ronald Desrosiers at the NERPRC, Harvard Medical School, Boston. The research topic was “Function of the HIV and SIV nef and env genes.”
14 July 2016 Aaron Diamond AIDS Research Center and Laboratory of Retrovirology (USA) has joined the EURIPRED EXTRANET
The biology and evolution of retroviruses and eukaryotic cells is very closely linked. In general, our research seeks to define how the replication of retroviruses is influenced by host gene products, with an emphasis on human and primate immunodeficiency viruses. We work in a variety of areas, but the two major themes are: (1) the identification and characterization of host-cell factors and pathways that are mimicked, manipulated and/or exploited by retroviruses and (2) identifying and understanding the mechanistic basis of host functions that have evolved specifically to provide a defense against retrovirus infection.

The Virtual Institute- a new online European platform to fight poverty related diseases

The EURIPRED consortium is a partnership of 17 leading organisations in the field of  poverty related diseases (PRD)  partially supported by the European Commission has developed  a new online  platform that strenghthens  efficient collaboration  among researchers working in the field of HIV, TB, Malaria and Hepatitis. The platform has the following modalities:    


PRD BioBanks PRD BioBanks
The  virtual BioBank offers the  ability to easily share information on available blood samples  with the objective  to accelerate lifesaving discoveries on PRD. The researcher  may directly access  the virtual BioBank and enjoy the platform's  comprehensive information solutions (such as harmonised  search and retrieval of information of large volumes of data)  that foster  the collaboration and sharing that  are essential to  advance research.

Online training module
onlinetraining400x175.png The virtual institute training functionality is a flexible tool that enables the organization and  structuring of  any  eLearning modules. The user can upload  his/her content or use existing online content across various platforms (youtube, etc.) to build the  online training courses. The monitoring system installed in the training module allows the user to keep records on the most. 

knowlege transfer.jpgThe dissemination  module may contain documents that are made available to raise awareness among researchers, general public as well as the policy makers, industries and other stakeholders to promote the project vision and its achievements. As a living module, the content may be constantly updated reflecting the impact of the project's dissemination activities addressed to raise awareness and acceptance of scientific and public audiences and reaching the broadest possible audience to create an efficient  framework for knowledge transfer between research centers and industries.


networking2.jpgThe platform has a powerful professional networking module with about 30 different functionalities  enabling the user to join or form new networks and significantly strengthen collaboration within the project and with outside world. The  project’s partner  may invite an external user by forming an extranet network with a limited access to the project's activities for the external users. The virtual institute networking platform enables instant communication within and outside the project. The networking platform has two areas: the first one links the project with  external networks and projects and the second is the internal area that reinforces collaboration between the project’s partners via mapped out  activities. The internal networking area is a fully protected from the external threats place that enables the users to execute the project’s  tasks in much more efficient collaborative way.
