Boston University has received final approval to begin researching the world's deadliest infectious diseases at its so-called "Biolab" in Boston's South End.

The Boston Public Health Commission gave that approval Wednesday. The Centers for Disease Control had given approval late last year.

The lab has been open but awaiting the final go-ahead for the highest-tier infectious disease research.
