Laboratory of Infectious Diseases – Lyme Disease Studies Unit

The LID Lyme Disease Studies Unit (LDSU) seeks to perform translational research studies to answer fundamental questions regarding human influenza and other emerging viral infections to inform and impact future vaccine and therapeutic design, while also making an effort to assist in evaluation of novel products that may impact human health.

The following clinical research studies are seeking volunteers for studies being conducted by the LID LDSU at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland:

Screening Healthy Volunteers for Influenza Challenge Studies

This screening is used to determine eligibility for future studies that will help researchers learn more about the development and course of the flu virus.
