We very closely work with various BNITM departments and units, as well as with external collaborators, partners and networks, to provide state-of-start laboratory expertise for pathogens up to risk group 4. Our major focus is on highly pathogenic RNA viruses yet we can quickly adjust to broaden our portfolio of expertise when emergency arises as highlighted with COVID-19 and Mpox. Thanks to many years of fundamental and applied laboratory research, capacity building activities, and EMLab deployments in resource limited settings, we offer a unique set of skills and broad knowledge to support public health surveillance systems and or operational research during non-outbreak and outbreak situations. We actively take part of various teaching opportunities (EPICID, Lab Sphere) and also organize EMLab training once a year to sustain the pool of EMLab experts. We like to develop harmonized processes and training curricula to allow for a sustainable approach ensuring that the pool of experts operating such mobile laboratories deliver comparable data at quality. In line with this, we supported the establishment of the Nigerian-Mobile Laboratory at the Irrua Specialist Teaching Hospital, Irrua, Nigeria, which we still jointly managed. Our pool of experts also assisted with set-up and training of the East Africa Community (EAC) Mobile Laboratories for Ebola virus (2018-2019).
