Division of Microbiology and Infectious Diseases Research Areas

The Division of Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (DMID) supports extramural basic through applied research to control and prevent diseases caused by virtually all human infectious agents except HIV. DMID provides funding opportunities and a comprehensive set of resources for researchers that support basic research, preclinical development, and clinical evaluation. 

Through funding opportunities, investigators may apply for grants or contracts. Through resources for researchers, investigators may obtain research tools and technologies to facilitate their research and request development by DMID-funded contractors of critical information needed to move a product through the product development pathway.
