Vanderbilt University Medical Center: For Employees, Researchers, and Students

Virology Services

Vanderbilt has a strong core of basic and clinical scientists working in the HIV field, and has top-notch clinical trials in the areas of therapy and vaccines. Meharry has an independent basic HIV research program and considerable expertise in healthcare research relevant to minority populations. The overall objective of the HIV Molecular Virology and Genetics Core is to foster new discoveries by providing common resources and infrastructure that will link basic scientists to clinical scientists at both institutions. The core will allow investigators in a wide variety of fields to obtain expert assistance and reagents to facilitate their HIV-related research projects.
