Centre for Virology, Vaccinology and Therapeutics
Proactive and effective “surveillance and control” of epidemic infectious diseases outbreaks relies on the comprehensive knowledge of the viruses circulating in animals and human, reliable prediction of the potential of these animal viruses to jump interspecies barrier from animal to human, highly-multiplex diagnostic tests for rapid detection of these viruses in healthcare and field setting, broad spectrum antivirals for prophylactic and therapeutic treatment, and most importantly, a safe and towards-universal vaccine platform with heterologous protection against antigenically drifted viruses. Centre for Virology, Vaccinology and Therapeutics (CVVT) is set to provide these conditions.
