Research Interests

Teilo Schaller's research interests lie in the development of alternative drug therapies for viruses, specifically Cytomegalovirus. During his bachelor's thesis at the Institute of Immunology in Munich, he isolated CD8+ T cell to be used in T-cell therapies for the treatment of cytomegalovirus infections in immunocomprised patients. At the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore he co-developed a Valganciclovir thin film that may be used as an ocular implant for the treatment of retinal Cytomegalovirus.
