Govt Job: For Ph.D, M.Pharm, M.Sc at National Institute of Virology | Salary Rs. 40,000 pm

The National Institute of Virology is one of the major Institutes of the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR). It was established at Pune, Maharashtra State in 1952 as Virus Research Centre (VRC) under the auspices of the ICMR and the Rockefeller Foundation (RF), USA.

It was an outcome of the global programme of the RF for investigating the Arthropod Borne viruses.

Since the studies on arboviruses and their arthropod vectors involve most of the basic principles and techniques of general virology, entomology and zoology, these viruses were also considered to be an ideal group, to begin with, for intensive training and research in virology in our country.

The RF withdrew its support in 1967 and since then the Institute is entirely funded by the ICMR.
