Razi Vaccine and Serum Research Institute is known as one of the oldest and most reputable scientific centers in Iran. This Institute began its activities in the 1925 with producing vaccine against Rinderpest under the supervision of Ministry of Agriculture. Rinderpest at the time had caused large casualties in the cattle population of the country, but Razi Institute's team very rapidly took up the research and production of the Rinderpest vaccine.
Presently, Razi Institute is controlled by Ministry of Jihad-e-Agriculture and works closely with Ministry of Health and Veterinary Organization. The institute is governed by a Board of Trustees with its Headquarter located in Karaj, Iran. RVSRI provides 110,000 square meter research with laboratory buildings. Razi Institute is a center of research, training and technical assistance for vaccines needed in developing countries and the Middle East.
