Biocontainment Laboratory—University of Alabama at Birmingham Southeastern Biosafety Laboratory Alabama Birmingham (SEBLAB)
The regional biocontainment laboratory at University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), called Southeastern Biosafety Laboratory Alabama Birmingham (SEBLAB), is one of the NIAID-supported Biocontainment Laboratories.
The University of Chicago Howard T. Ricketts Laboratory (HTRL) is one of the NIAID-supported Biocontainment Laboratories. The HTRL is a state of the art BSL-3 facility constructed to support research on bacterial and viral pathogens.
Biocontainment Laboratory—University of Missouri Regional Laboratory for Infectious Disease Research (LIDR)
The University of Missouri Laboratory for Infectious Disease Research (LIDR) is one of the NIAID-supported Biocontainment Laboratories.
The University of Pittsburgh Regional Biocontainment Laboratory is one of the NIAID-supported Biocontainment Laboratories.
Provides services to facilitate preclinical development of materials that are derived from biotechnology processes. Services will be conducted at the appropriate regulatory compliance level dependent on the stage of product development.
FLUTE is a Functional Genomics Center funded by NIAID, with the goal of discovering the roles of genes from Mtb with previously unknown functions. In addition FLUTE aims to establish an efficient pathway for identifying gene function that could serve as a paradigm for other bacterial species.
The GCID use and develop or improve innovative applications of genomic technologies, such as RNA sequencing and metagenomics, and provide rapid and cost-efficient production of high-quality genome sequences of microorganisms, invertebrate vectors of infectious diseases, and hosts and host microbiomes. Multiple strains and isolates of specific microbial species, populations and communities have been and continue to be sequenced.
This free resource offers easy searching of experimental data characterizing antibody and T cell epitopes studied in humans, non-human primates, and other animal species.
The In Vitro Assessment for Antimicrobial Activity program provides capability in a broad range of in vitro assessments to evaluate promising candidate countermeasures for antimicrobial activity against microbial pathogens and vectors, including those derived from clinical speci
The Interventional Agent Development Services program provides services to facilitate preclinical development of therapeutics and new in vivo diagnostics for infectious disease-causing pathogens and/or toxins.
Note: Devices are excluded.
The Phase I Clinical Trial Units for Therapeutics support the design, development, implementation, and conduct of Phase I clinical trials to assess safety, pharmacokinetics, and/or pharmacodynamics of licensed and investigational therapeutic products, including immunomodulatory agents and monoclo
This contract program supports the development and refinement of animal models and animal replacement technologies and provides in vivo preclinical testing services, ranging from screening and proof-of-concept to GLP efficacy studies.
The Structural Genomics Centers for Infectious Diseases provide the research community with:
The Therapeutic Development Services program offers a collection of preclinical services to support the development of products intended for use in the cure, mitigation, diagnosis, or treatment of disease caused by a pathogen or certain toxins.
The Vaccine Development Services program offers a collection of preclinical services to support the development of vaccines intended for use in the investigation, control, prevention, and treatment of a wide range of infectious agents (other than HIV).
