The SARS-Cov-2 virus is currently concerning the entire world and affecting our daily lives. Research in Berlin is also running at full speed. The MDC scientist Dr. Emanuel Wyler is investigating the changes in various cells and organoids during an infection. He is investigating the question: What changes take place in infected cells and what contributes to a mild or severe or mild disease progression? The changes in an infected cell can vary from cell type to cell type. The models studied include pieces of the lung, different organoids and cell lines.
Dr. Emanuel Wyler is a molecular biologist at the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine in the research group "RNA Biology and Posttranscriptional Regulation”. He throws big data experiments at viruses to study their interaction with human cells.
