Institute of Advanced Virology was established by the Government of Kerala in 2019 institute of global standards with most modern laboratories focusing on research, diagnosis and management of emerging and re-emerging infectious viral diseases and establishing networking with global virology institutes. It is envisioned as a centre of excellence to work in collaboration with international institutions for training and education covering basic and translational research, providing scientific inputs to enable the prevention and control of viral infections, strengthen pandemic preparedness; and offer rapid response and risk communication to the public. The Institute currently has all the infrastructure required to carry out high infections in a multifarious approach.

The Institute currently undertake various ambitious research projects with translational potential under the following flagship programmes:

  • Monoclonal antibodies and antiviral drug development against emerging viruses.
  • Nucleic acid-based vaccines against emerging viruses
  • New generation multiplex diagnostic platforms against viral syndromes

As part of the mandate of the Institute to create a pool of skilled scientific & technical personnel in virology to serve local, national and global needs, Institute offers short term training programme of various durations to those who complete Graduation /Post Graduation/ doctoral degrees in Life Sciences and allied subjects. The aim of the short-term training programme is to equip them with latest molecular/cell biology techniques and other basic laboratory techniques.
