Microbiology and Infectious Diseases Clinical Research Policies and Standard Operating Procedures

Note: The information on NIAID’s investigator-initiated clinical trial (IICT) pages is being updated. Refer to the scientific/research contacts listed in our IICT funding opportunity announcements if you have any questions.

The Division of Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (DMID) supports extramural clinical research to control and prevent diseases caused by virtually every human infectious agent (except HIV). For the purpose of this website “clinical research” refers to research conducted on human subjects or on material of human origin that can be personally identified. This term applies to both clinical trials and clinical studies.

The pages on this site provide policies, guidances and tools developed by DMID. The “Selected References” page provides links to references cited on the DMID pages and documents, and are some of the most frequently referred to in clinical research.
