The Unit of Biology of Emerging Viral Infections (UBIVE) was created in 2001 to develop expertise in research, surveillance, diagnosis and prevention of viral zoonoses inducing mostly hemorrhagic fevers in humans. In metropolitan France, UBIVE is the only Institut Pasteur (IP) Unit out of the Parisian campus. It is located in Lyon because of the presence of the BSL4 Laboratory Jean Mérieux-Inserm. UBIVE hosts the National Reference Center (NRC) for Viral Hemorrhagic Fevers and the NRC for Hantavirus.

Project: Immune responses and pathogenesis of Lassa fever
Sylvain Baize (PI)
-Summary of the previous studies The main research effort of UBIVE is devoted to Lassa fever (LF), a viral hemorrhagic fever (VHF) endemic in West Africa and responsible for 300,000 cases and 5,000 deaths […]
