Organization profile

The Clinical and Applied Virology group focuses on all aspects relating to viral infectious diseases and their impact. 

Viral infectious diseases represent a worldwide threat to public health and economy. 

Activities of the group include surveillance, diagnosis, outbreak investigations, molecular epidemiology and immunity against various viral diseases. Information on virus prevalence, variability and pathogenicity is important to public health decision makers to control and manage infectious diseases. 

As WHO Collaborating Centre for Measles and European Regional Reference Laboratory for Measles and Rubella, the interdisciplinary team has initiated research, capacity building and quality assurance projects in numerous countries. 

Besides the worldwide WHO laboratory network, major collaborators include the Ministries of Health and Foreign Affairs in Luxembourg as well as the Avian Influenza and Newcastle disease network and the Institut Pasteur du Laos.
