STATE LEVEL VIRAL RESEARCH AND DIAGNOSTIC LABORATORY (VRDL)

(Setting up of Nation-wide Network of Laboratories for Managing Epidemics and National Calamities)

Virus Research and Diagnostic Laboratory (VRDL) ICMR-RMRC Gorakhpur, is a designated state level laboratory under the VRDL network established by Department of Health Research, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Government of India, as a part of implementation of the Scheme Establishment of a Network of Laboratories for Managing Epidemics and Natural Calamities to strengthen infrastructure of viral diagnostics in India. It became operational from March 2022. The Laboratory, is state of the art laboratory in eastern region of Uttar Pradesh.

Objective

  • Creating infrastructure for timely identification of viruses and other agents causing morbidity significant at public health level and specifically agents causing epidemics and/ or potential agents for bioterrorism.
  • Developing capacity for identification of novel and unknown viruses and other organisms and emerging/ re-emerging viral strains and develop diagnostic kits.
  • Providing training to health professionals.
  • Undertaking research for identification of emerging and newer genetically active/modified agents.
  • Continual improvement in quality systems in public health laboratories for viral diagnosis.
