The aerobiology section at the Integrated Research Facility at Fort Detrick (IRF‑Frederick) develops aerosol animal models of disease caused by high-consequence pathogens within animal biosafety level 4 (ABSL-4) containment laboratories.
Artificial intelligence (AI), in its many forms, is applied to infectious disease research at the IRF-Frederick. Primarily focused on medical imaging of preclinical models, state of the art methods are developed, applied to ongoing research and translated to human studies of disease.
The Clinical Study Support Team (CSST) is a deployable team with the primary objective of developing and fostering overseas relationships through the support of research studies and clinical trials involving pathogens of high consequence.
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.
