Developing, characterizing, and refining animal models are key to advancing medical countermeasures for high-consequence pathogens.
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.
As one of two National Biocontainment Laboratories constructed under grants awarded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases/National Institutes of Health (NIAID/NIH), the Galveston National Laboratory (GNL) enables progress in our understanding of the fundamental mechanisms u
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 core services group at the Integrated Research Facility at Fort Detrick (IRF Frederick) provides cell culture, hematology, hemostasis, clinical chemistry, microbiology, and molecular virology support for monitoring animals in infectious disease studies.
The immunology laboratory at the Integrated Research Facility at Fort Detrick (IRF-Frederick) offers a variety of capabilities to interrogate the immune responses against pathogens requiring maximum containment.
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 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).
