Resources for Researchers
The ARLG biorepositories were created to aid in the development and evaluation of novel diagnostic tests and laboratory techniques, study mechanisms of resistance, generate preliminary data for study concepts, and support/mentor early-stage investigators pursuing research in the field of antibact
The National Emerging Infectious Diseases Laboratories (NEIDL) is one of two National Biocontainment Laboratories constructed under a grant from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
The Rutgers University Regional Biocontainment Laboratory is one of the NIAID-supported Biocontainment Laboratories. The RBL is a highly secure facility designed to provide an ultra-safe work environment for scientists and support staff, as well as the public at large.
The Tufts New England Regional Biosafety Laboratory (RBL) is one of the NIAID-supported Regional 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.
GUNK center is part of the NIAID Functional Genomics Program. This center was created to investigate the role of previously uncharacterized genes of A. baumannii in its ability to cause human disease. Three projects have been established to:
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 Systems Biology Consortium for Infectious Diseases is a community of systems biologists who integrate experimental biology, computational tools and modeling across temporal and spatial scales to improve our understanding of infectious disease
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).
