The Center for Emerging Viruses (CEV) at the University of Minnesota was established in 2020, responding to the devastating impact of COVID-19 on global health and economy.

The mission of CEV is to investigate the infection mechanisms of emerging viruses and to develop diagnostic, preventive and therapeutic strategies against emerging viral infections. 

Our mission is manifested in Minnesota Daily's report on CEV's groundbreaking discoveries.
