U.S. Right to Know is investigating virus hunting and the risks of gain-of-function research, which involve experiments on pathogens to increase their host range, infectivity, transmissibility, or pathogenicity. We are also researching mishaps at biolabs where pathogens of pandemic potential are stored and manipulated. We have unearthed and reported on many newsworthy documents that have been covered by media outlets around the world. See also our coverage of the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic.
