Our Mission

The MVSC supports investigators through an array of specialized virology services and the provision of technical expertise. 

Key focus areas are:

  • Custom production and quality control of viral vectors, viral stocks and antigens.
  • Sensitive viral diagnostic assays to study virus spread after infection, monitor viral tissue distribution, and assess antiviral antibodies.
  • Provision and development of key reagents and standardized assays.

In addition, the MVSC offers user training in virology techniques, safe handling of infectious agents, and assistance in maintaining proper compliance with local institutional biosafety requirements.
