Core facilities that contribute to the availability of emerging infectious diseases research for the institution, the region, and the nation
As a national resource, we must anticipate the research needs of investigators, over at least a 20-year period, and “add value” to existing and planned facilities. To meet these needs, we will use flexible core facilities devoted to a comprehensive array of research methodologies. Together, these cores contribute to the entire product development continuum, from basic science to clinical research.
The NEIDL is one part of a national network of secure facilities that study infectious diseases.
Other laboratories, such as the newly opened Integrated Research Facility at Rocky Mountain Laboratories (RML) in Hamilton, Montana, also play a key role in the national effort to study, diagnose, treat, and ultimately prevent the spread of emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases.
