His research interests focus on retrovirology and gene therapy (more than150 publications). Early research on oncogenic Harvey sarcoma virus was followed by a characterisation of the apathogenic infection of African green monkeys with SIVagm and of the development of HIV-1 virus variants from a single biological virus clone in patients. In gene therapy, he generated a variety of retro- and lentiviral vectors and vector pseudotypes and he demonstrated the feasibility of cell targeting in vitroand in vivo.
