Welcome to the Website of the Swiss National Center for Retroviruses.

The SNCR was founded in 1986 as part of a series of measures by the Swiss government directed against the AIDS epidemic. In addition to testing undertaken as the result of its role as a national reference laboratory for diagnosis of HIV and other human retroviruses, the SNCR is also occupied with diagnostic test development and is actively engaged in research related to the field of retroviruses.

Since September 2008 the SNCR has been integrated as a division within the Institute of Medical Virology at the University of Zurich.
