The National Institutes of Health (NIH) supports research in primary immune deficiency diseases (PIDDs) at clinical centers and universities across the United States.
USIDNet is a research consortium that aims to advance PIDD research by facilitating collaborations between investigators and providing mentoring to researchers new to the PIDD field.
The consortium oversees a resource for clinicians that provides information about the clinical characteristics and prevalence of PIDDs in the United States. USIDNet also maintains a collection of DNA and immune cells from patient samples that are available to investigators at academic and commercial organizations studying PIDDs.
Additional support for USIDNet is provided by NIH’s Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development.

NIAID sponsors exploratory/developmental investigations on PIDDs. The purpose of these awards is to encourage investigators with expertise in immunology and infectious diseases to conduct research focusing on PIDDs and to stimulate research projects that use human samples or animal models to better understand PIDDs.
