The primary focus of the Virology Unit has been the development of a comprehensive portfolio of influenza assays and services. We are currently approved for work with mouse-adapted, human historic/contemporary, low/highly pathogenic avian and Select Agent influenza strains. A major accomplishment of the group is establishment of a ferret model of influenza challenge which is now available for strains requiring ABSL2 containment.
