Laboratory of Viral Immunology

Viral immunology is the study of the immune system’s response to a virus.

The Laboratory of Viral Immunology was created in 1960 as one of three new laboratories in the Division of Biologics Standards (DBS). The Laboratory of Viral Immunology in the Division of Biologics Standards (DBS) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) was located in Building 29, second floor. After Building 29A opened in 1967, the lab and its staff moved to the second and third floors of the new annex building.

Dr. Paul D. Parkman, Dr. Harry M. Meyer, Jr., and Hope Hopps worked in Viral Immunology.

After the administrative transfer of the DBS from the NIH to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1972, the Laboratory of Viral Immunology was no longer listed in telephone directories and likely combined with other divisions such as the Division of Virology or the Division of Viral Products.
