This Week in Virology
For episode #200, the TWiV team went behind-the-scenes in a biosafety level 4 (BSL-4) laboratory. Produced by MicrobeWorld of the American Society for Microbiology and Boston University School of Medicine.

Absolutely great video! Nice to see all the engineering that goes into creating such an incredible space!
Absolutely amazing, how am praying this place gets working soon. Maximum security, safety and containment possible in our day. Thanks for the video, I was completely hooked and realised at the end that I had been smiling for the whole hour.
Awesome… It is an amazing look inside the world of virology and everything behind a bsl-4. Thanks.
very good video. Being a scientist I’m not envy of people that will work there. Try to imagine, if you have ever worked in a lab, what does it mean to stay the whole day embedded in a suite.
More, I really do not understand why did they built this facility in the very center of a crowded town. I’m sure it is safe but … why do you want to add an even sub-decimal risk. You want to have it close to Boston? Do it in a less crowded area.
I probably never would have been able to see the inside of a facility like this without the help of TWiV and Dr. Racaniello (great cast as well). Big thanks for this production! Starting to wish I was a virologist…
