National Institute of Virology India


The National Institute of Virology located in Pune city, Maharashtra state, India is a famous virology research institute of our country. I know majority of the people are familiar with the name National Institute of virology. Another important fact is that this virus research centre was found with the collaboration of Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) and Rockefeller Foundation (RF) in the year 1952. But later in 1978, this virus research center was redesignated as NIV (National Institute of Virology). We Indians should be proud of the fact that NIV Pune is designated as WHO H5 reference laboratory for the SE Asia region. But I do not think whether all people know the importance of this virology institute located in our country. So in general we have to understand what actually NIV is? It's a fact that from the name itself we can understand that this is an institute related to viruses. You should remember the fact that NIV Pune is a WHO Collaborating Center for hemorrhagic fever reference as well as arboviruses reference and research. We all are aware of the fact that diseases like measles, hepatitis, influenza and Japanese encephalitis are easily affected by human beings. Keep in mind that NIV Pune is a national monitoring center for the above mentioned diseases. During this period, NIV Pune had won several awards and honors.
