Main Research Interests: Molecular biology of animal viruses, in particular herpes-, paramyxo-, orthomyxo- and rhabdoviruses
Besides studies on the basic processes of virus-host interaction experiments focus on the development of novel vaccines using molecular techniques.
For more than 25 years Thomas Mettenleiter has performed research primarily on herpesviruses, in particular herpesviruses of animals. His scientific studies on the molecular biology and pathogenesis of animal herpesviruses provided important results to the understanding of the structure, replication, virulence and tropism of herpesviruses and for the development of novel vaccines.His results contributed significantly to the first development of marked vaccines and, thus, for the efficient control and eradication of Aujeszky's disease in pigs.
