Nigeria Centre for Disease Control Launches Biorepository

At the Central Public Health Laboratory (CPHL), a site of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control’s National Reference Laboratory in Lagos, the NCDC has opened a sizable biorepository facility.

The Institute of Human Virology in Nigeria, one of the project’s implementing partners, received funding from the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (US-CDC).
