The Virology and Molecular Biomarkers Core supports virology studies at all points along the spectrum of HIV/AIDS and SIV research for humans and non-human primates.

The Core's Translational Virology laboratory is located at Yerkes National Primate Research Center (YNPRC). Under the direction of Dr. Vanderford, it provides a broad spectrum of virological and gene expression assays for investigators studying SIV/SHIV infection in nonhuman primates (NHP).

The Core's Clinical Virology laboratory is located at Woodruff Memorial Building. Under the direction of Dr. Kraft, it provides HIV viral load quantification and assays related to HIV-associated diseases in humans.
