Research Science Center at Georgia State University
The Center for Translational Antiviral Research has been established in the Institute for Biomedical Sciences at Georgia State University to fill the gap for developing affordable, much-needed antiviral drugs that will reduce severe viral diseases and meet the threats imposed by existing and newly evolving viruses.
The research center will focus primarily on RNA virus pathogens of high pandemic potential, such as the coronaviruses, influenza viruses and paramyxoviruses such as Nipah virus.
The center will focus on translating basic discoveries into applicable therapeutic candidates. It will bring together an interdisciplinary group of faculty skilled in scientific collaboration to harness Georgia State’s unique strengths in RNA virus research, antiviral drug discovery and high-biocontainment infectious disease research.
