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 mankind. 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.
