Molecular and Cellular Virology Core

Overview of Services

The Virology, Next Generation Sequencing and Imaging Core supports research on HIV and associated pathogens, by providing state-of-the-art biosafety laboratories. The Core provides an efficient, cost-effective and safe environment for researchers involved in HIV research, in its BL-3 and BL-2+ facilities. The Core offers facilities for growth and analysis of microbial and viral pathogens together with training in methodologies of HIV culture and assay. Users of the BL-3 facility must be certified and individual projects approved by the BL-3 Advisory Group. The Core facilities are located on the 10th floor of the Biomedical Research Building. The Core also provides access and expertise to next-generation sequencing technology in a CLIA/CAP accredited environment.
