Resources for Researchers
The National Emerging Infectious Diseases Laboratories (NEIDL) is part of a national network of secure facilities studying infectious diseases that are—or have the potential to become—major public health concerns
The Colorado State University Regional Biocontainment Laboratory is one of the NIAID-supported Regional Biocontainment Laboratories.
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.
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.
The Regional Biocontainment Lab (RBL) at the Center for Predictive Medicine is one of the NIAID-supported Biocontainment Laboratories.
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.
The Structural Genomics Centers for Infectious Diseases provide the research community with:
