About the CVDR

Centre for Vaccines and Diagnostic Research (CVDR) has been established with a mission to harness the power of vaccines and diagnostics to prevent and manage infectious diseases in the 'One Health' approach. Emergence of new pathogens and continued evolution in existing is creating new global challenges. These challenges need to be taken care of as 'One Health' initiative. Therefore, vaccines and diagnostics are going to play a seminal role in fighting these challenges. Centre is strengthening the links between basic research and translational research, industry and the socio-economic world, to accelerate vaccines and diagnostic development. Our vaccine research Centre focuses on developing new vaccines, improving existing vaccines and development of better adjuvants. Further, there is a need to develop new generation point of care diagnostics that are affordable and efficacious especially in the view of resource-limited population in developing and underdeveloped world. Our team has expertise in developing point of care diagnostics. Centre concentrates on the integration of a transdisciplinary approach from the basic sciences to translational research towards development of vaccines and diagnostics. Training is a critical component of the Centre and ensures the foundation for the next generation of scientists and researchers committed to global health initiatives.

Mission Statement
