The Institute focuses on studying viruses with highly variable genomes that can cause the emergencies associated with epidemics, which chiefly include influenza viruses, arboviruses, HIV, and transfusion-associated hepatitis viruses. To help forecast and analyze epidemics, the Institute studies the ecology of causative pathogens, using a wide range of interdisciplinary approaches to assess population interaction in the “host-virus” system.More details

D. I. IVANOVSKY INSTITUTE OF VIROLOGY
The D. I. Ivanovskiy Institute of Virology is one of the world’s largest scientific and research centers that specializes in the ecology, epidemiology, and molecular biology of human and animal viruses. The Institute’s premises accommodate the Russian Federation National Virus Collection, Russian National Collection of Cell Cultures, and many Russian national-level research centers. The Institute supports and develops a wide-ranging scientific network of contacts with the World Health Organization; the leading scientists at the Institute work as experts at the WHO.
Along with studying the fundamental aspects of virology, the Institute develops and continuously improves advanced methods used in diagnostics, and tests new preventive and treatment medications for highly dangerous, socially significant viral infections. The Institute is involved in producing prototypes for testing systems and conducting regular, large-scale monitoring work on viral infections throughout the Russian Federation.
