WHO center

Reference center for HIV drug resistance


The team is accredited by the World Health Organization for HIV resistance since 2005 (managed by Patricia Pinson).

This WHO center has several missions:

-we receive samples from all around the world and more specifically from South countries for sequencing and resistance profiling.

-we dispense training to foreign researchers and medical doctors for monitoring HIV resistance (either on-site or directly in their country of origin)

-we actively participate to HIV workshops organized by the WHO HIV drug resistance laboratory network (NGS, IN genotyping etc.)
