Institute for Antiviral Research
The Institute for Antiviral Research is part of the College of Agriculture and Applied Sciences. The Institute for Antiviral Research is comprised of a team of recognized scientists working to identify antiviral agents and vaccines against a wide range of human pathogenic viruses.
In addition to receiving funding from the National Institute of Health, the National Institute of Mental Health, and the Department of Defense, the IAR also performs fee-for-service testing for private pharmaceutical and research companies. We have numerous in vitro and in vivo models of viral disease that we have established over the past 40 years.
