Established in 1942, the NIAID Laboratory of Infectious Diseases (LID) has a long history of discovering new agents of viral diseases and developing innovative vaccines and treatments. The following are examples of Food and Drug Administration-approved medical advances in which LID scientists played a crucial role:
- FluMist, a nasal spray influenza vaccine licensed by MedImmune
- Synagis, a preventative treatment for respiratory syncytial virus licensed by MedImmune
- Havrix, a hepatitis A vaccine licensed by GlaxoSmithKline
