Recent Outbreaks

Round, floating, fluorescent green  H1N1 influenza viruses covered in long protruding stems.


Within the last century, we have seen an alarming number of globally devastating outbreaks that have had a disastrous impact on public health. Rapid response to these crises has been critical for the timely development of diagnostic tests, therapeutics, and vaccines.

Culture collections like ATCC play an important role in the response to emerging outbreaks by providing front-line investigators with the high-quality, authenticated biological materials needed to understand pathogenesis and develop the tools needed to stop the spread of disease. As in previous public health emergencies, ATCC will continue partnering with industry, research, academic, and public health communities to support these critical efforts.
