NEW FACILITIES

The Center of Excellence for Emerging Viral Threats (CEVT) will open doors to a new facility in 2024. Scientists at LSUHS in the CEVT's Viral Genomics and Sequencing Lab have been sequencing SARS CoV-2 genomes since April 2020 and their work is a leading contributor to state, national and international databases for COVID-19 surveillance. The CEVT received two additional grants totaling over $1 million to support their genomic sequencing efforts. 

The new facility will allow the CEVT to transition from a BSL2 to a BSL3 lab and expand its mission as a robust surveillance site for new and returning pathogens.
