The Global Virus Network (GVN) was established in 2011 in order to strengthen research and responses to current viral causes of human disease and to prepare against new viral pandemic threats. There are now 42 GVN Centers of Excellence and 7 Affiliate laboratories in 27 countries. GVN scientists meet annually to learn about each other’s current research, address collaborative priorities and plan future programs.

The 10th International Global Virus Network (GVN) Meeting was held from November 28-30 in Veyrier du Lac, France and was co-hosted by GVN Centers of Excellence, the Mérieux Foundation and the University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover (TiHo), and led by FM’s Dr. Hubert Endtz, TiHo’s Dr. Ab Osterhaus and GVN’s Dr. Christian Bréchot.
