The research cores at the NEIDL will facilitate discoveries about emerging infectious diseases for the institution, the region, and the nation.
The NEIDL includes facilities for:
- Basic research to identify mechanisms of pathogenesis and potential targets for new diagnostics, vaccines, biologicals, and therapeutics
- Translational research to identify molecules/reagents/leads that might be useful as diagnostics, immunogens, biologicals, or therapeutics
- Clinical studies involving human volunteers
We strongly emphasize the core facilities that are housed in high-containment areas, since these resources are the most urgently needed and least available nationwide.
