We isolated several emerging viruses and used them as the test viruses in the seroepidemiological studies in human and animal populations to determine magnitudes of the outbreak situations. The team also carries out the molecular characterization of the virus isolates in collaboration with other institutes. To support the government and private sectors, Virology and Diagnostic laboratories at Faculty of Medical Technology play role in the evaluation of diagnostic reagents, medical devices, and assays for the anti-viral activities of several products. Some basic and applied research studies go along with these activities.
