Virology

The Immunology Virology Quality Assessment Center (IVQAC) is a resource designed to help domestic and international immunologists evaluate and enhance the integrity and comparability of immunological laboratory determinations performed on patients enrolled in multi-site HIV/AIDS therapeutic, vaccine and prevention investigations. The IVQAC has multiple focuses including directing the External Quality Assurance Program Oversight Laboratory (EQAPOL), the Immune Quality Assessment (IQA) program, and the Non-Human Primate Core Virology Laboratory (NHPCVL).

The RBL Virology Unit is a service component of the Regional Biocontainment Laboratory at Duke (housed in GHRB). The Virology Unit was created to provide world-class quality-controlled support for virus research requiring up to and including enhanced biosafety level 3 containment. In addition to the influenza program the Virology Unit has expertise in work with influenza virus, alphaviruses, flaviviruses, poxviruses, rotavirus and vesicular stomatitis virus.
