Basic Information

Overview

The main objective of the CNRL is to carry out virological surveillance of human influenza and ensure that data are shared through EISN reporting mechanisms in a timely manner. The concept of the CNRL, set up under the EISS project, was retained in the new EISN program to focus on further developing influenza reference laboratories cooperation.
