The Nigerian Society for Virology

Thank you for this visit. We welcome you and hope that you will find all that you want to know about the Nigerian Society for Virology (NSV).

Nigerian Society for Virology was formally incorporated as a corporate body on the 30th of August, 2017. Prior to that it's been existing for more than a decade as an organization of few concerned Virologists who met regularly to brainstorm on some issues of the day, most especially when an epidemic of virological concern emerges. Today we are a much organized group with membership almost in every aspect of life: health, academic, research institutions, Agricultural settings, industries etc.

Founding of the Nigerian Society for Virology

The Nigerian Society for Virology was founded in 2017 under the leadership of Prof. Clement Ibi Mboto following several years of discussions, meetings and planning by a small group of virologists. Today, we have a large pool of members in all works of life all over the country. The first annual meeting of the NSV after its incorporation was held in Calabar on November 8-10, 2017.
