Human  Virology 

As a follow-up of the Arbovirus diagnostic workshop and in response to the Zika outbreak in 2015, the human virology working group has distributed real-time RT-PCR reagents to all laboratories of the Human Virology network in order to enhance the diagnostic capacity for arboviral infections, in particular, West Nile, Chikungunya, Rift Valley fever and Zika.



Animal  VIROLOGY 

  • July 2015: Shipment of reference material and reagents for RVFV molecular detection to Dr. Ozkul (Veterinary Faculty Ankara, Turkey)

  • April 2017: Shipment of reference material and SOP for molecular detection of Bagaza virus (a mosquito borne flavivirus that causes diseases in birds) to Dr. Selma Mejri (Institut de la Recherche Vétérinaire de Tunisie)

    Specific Training

  • January 2016: Mrs. Zuleyha Ergun from the Veterinary Faculty of Ankara (PhD student of Dr. Ozkul) was trained during one month at CISA-INIA about molecular diagnosis of WNV and related flaviviruses and biosafety practices. The collaboration was stablished under the MediLabSecure project and the internship at CISA-INIA was financed by the Turkish Government.
