Flu Hub

Flu Hub is a centralized website dedicated to cross-NIAID networks, programs, and resources supporting the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Universal Influenza Vaccine Strategic Plan. Flu Hub provides an overview of the research areas each initiative fulfills and the science conducted throughout. Our repository of influenza research resources highlights research facilities, preclinical services, clinical resources, reagents, datasets, and bioinformatics tools available. By connecting researchers to cross-cutting information, the Flu Hub site ensures optimal distribution of knowledge and tools among the scientific community to advance influenza research.
