Frankfurt - With her socially highly relevant expertise in the field of virology, in particular on Sars-CoV-2 and Covid-19, Ciesek optimally complements the research focus of the Goethe University in Frankfurt and contributes to the international visibility of the university, said Minister of Science Angela Dorn ( Green).

One of the goals of the Loewe professorships introduced last year is to create attractive conditions to keep successful scientists in Hesse or to bring them to Hesse.
