Global Virome Project

The Global Virome Project (GVP) is leading the way towards better preparedness for future pandemics. This pioneering, 10-year global partnership between organizations in the environmental, animal and human health sectors aims to detect and characterize nearly all unknown viruses from wild animals around the world.

Properly identifying viral threats in animal populations causes a profound shift in pandemic prevention. Instead of a reactive approach focused on response and controlling outbreaks, we envision a proactive approach where we can develop new ways to prevent spill over to humans.
