Dengue Virus WZTV Spot
Researchers at the VVC are inching closer toward the development of a treatment and cure for dengue fever, which affects an estimated 400 million people each year.
We are committed to impacting global health through fundamental research that fosters development and testing of new vaccines for infectious diseases. Our international team of scientists and physicians focuses on work with major human pathogens, especially microbial threats that affect the most vulnerable subjects such as infants and the elderly. Many of the targets we study are particularly important in developing world settings. We also conduct research related to biodefense and emerging infectious diseases.
