We represent centers of excellence for research in medical virology from across the globe. Our work is dedicated to understanding, preventing and eradicating viral disease threats to mankind. Today, we affirm the need for new programs to coordinate, support and promote research that bridges the gap between virus surveillance and public health implementation.

The criteria for a GVN Center of Excellence are that:

1) the Director is a noted medical virologist,
2) the center is currently productive, and has deep expertise in 2-3 viral areas, and
3) the center is committed to capacity building in weaker institutes especially in resource-poor nations.
4) There is commitment to work to support GVN’s central operation through inclusion on grant and contract applications, fundraising events, direct donations or other means.
