The goal of the Center for Molecular and Tumor Virology is to bring together scientists who direct independent but interactive research programs in molecular and tumor virology. Within the CMTV, senior faculty members help to develop the academic careers of the junior level faculty members. These senior mentors are joined by an External Advisory Committee of internationally recognized virologists and an Internal Advisory Committee of additional NIH-funded investigators at LSUHSC.
The COBRE-supported CMTV includes:
- Administrative Core for administrative, clerical, fiscal, and secretarial support of the CMTV members
- The Molecular Analysis Core providing services, reagents, major instrumentation, equipment, and technical support to enhance the research activities of members of the CMTV.
- Bioinformatics Core based at the campus of LSU-Shreveport providing a variety of services for data analysis, bioinformatics, and data mining.
