The Global Virus Network (GVN) is a consortium of 80+ centers of excellence and affiliates from 40 countries dedicated to advancing virology knowledge, and application to preventing and treating viral diseases around the world.

This presentation will review the field of virology from a strategic perspective, highlighting the challenges in basic, clinical, and public health sciences. A unifying theme will be the prevention of future pandemics, as well as the response to those that may still occur even with proper prevention.

1. Introduce the Global Virus Network mission in the context of viral challenges and partnerships.
2. Articulate the complementary translational research elements of virology in all its stages, with examples from both the speaker’s work and those of GVN members.
3. Highlight implementation science to accelerate community application of virological discovery.
4. Anticipate current and future needs in virology that respond to population and environmental pressures and will accelerate the goal of global pandemic preparedness
