On 7 February, RESIST was part of the “aufhof” when the MHH presented itself with numerous contributions in the former Galeria Kaufhof building at the Marktkirche in Hanover’s city centre. A brand new, exciting virtual reality film on herpes virus infection was on show at the stand of our Cluster of Excellence. It shows in a unique way how cold sore viruses enter the body, which cell components play a role and how the virus multiplies there. There is also a quiz on herpes viruses.

In addition, Dr. Stephan Traidl from the MHH Clinic for Dermatology, Allergology and Venereology gave an exciting and very clear presentation entitled “Shingles – When the virus wakes up again”. The audience listened with great interest and received answers to numerous questions, for example on the subject of vaccination.

RESIST was thus part of the MHH exhibition in the courtyard, which took place from 6 to 10 February. The MHH presented its various facets as a maximum care hospital, an institution for cutting-edge research, a university for young medical academics and a training centre for 19 apprenticeships.
