The Global Virus Network is an essential and critical defense against viral disease. It is a coalition comprised of leading virologists around the world working to advance knowledge about how viruses make us sick and to develop drugs and vaccines to prevent illness and death.

No single institution in the world has expertise in all viral areas. GVN brings the best medical virologists and public health experts together to leverage individual strengths and to focus global teams of scientists on key scientific problems.

The power of GVN lies in its global reach, the depth of its science, and its commitment to solving viral challenges facing the human population. No other entity exists like the GVN.

Centers of Excellence

GVN Centers of Excellence conduct research in medical virology around the world. Our work is dedicated to understanding, preventing, and eradicating viral disease threats to humanity. We also affirm the need for new programs to coordinate, support and promote research that
bridges the gap between virus surveillance and public health implementation.






The Global Virus Network hosts a webinar series for virus knowledge-sharing, featuring expert virologists including from GVN Centers of Excellence around the world. The topics range from the COVID-19 pandemic and other human viral threats to the latest scientific progress in virology. Each session is a 30-40 minute live presentation, followed by a moderated 20-minute Q&A.
