This service provides chemical synthesis of lead compounds for use in additional drug development studies. Compounds must previously have been successfully synthesized to be candidates for this service. Synthesis of new analogs is not supported.

The HIV Prevention Trials Network (HPTN) offers two scholarship programs for early-career investigators funded through a supplement from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA).

The Human Tissue and Organ Research Resource (HTORR) program provides normal and diseased human tissues to investigators at research centers.  HTORR supports the procurement, preservation, and distribution of human tissue and organs for basic and clinical research.  While the resource maintains a

Diagnostic and molecular imaging are important components of research studies, as they provide real-time, longitudinal, structural, and functional insights into disease processes that cannot be obtained by other laboratory tests.

The Immcantation framework is developed as a start-to-finish analytical ecosystem for large-scale characterization of B cell receptor (BCR) and T cell receptor (TCR) repertoires from high-throughput adaptive immune receptor repertoire sequencing (AIRR-seq) datasets.

ImmPort is a Web portal that contains data from NIAID-funded immunology studies, including basic research and clinical trials. The portal provides online tools that allow users to analyze the data and visualize the results.

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 ImmuneSpace database is currently composed of 21 studies covering 10 types of assays and 2,500 total participants.

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 International Maternal Pediatric Adolescent AIDS Clinical Trials (IMPAACT) Early Career Investigator Mentored Research program aims to support the development of early career investigators to enter the field of maternal/child HIV research and advance the mission of the IMPAACT Network.

The main purpose of the International Maternal Pediatric Adolescent AIDS Clinical Trials (IMPAACT) Laboratory Center is to support the network’s scientific agenda by providing state of the art laboratory testing in support of clinical trials, new works concept sheets (NWCS), and data analysis con

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 ICSSC provides a wide range of support services to clinical investigators who are conducting international research funded by the Division of Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (DMID), including consultation and assistance to investigators for protocol development, site assessment, data man

A common data model for sharing observational HIV data has been developed by the International epidemiology Databases to Evaluate AIDS (IeDEA). The IeDEA DES is used by the seven operational regions of IeDEA to exchange data with each other for collaborative research studies.

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.

The Markedly Accelerating Research with Knowledge of Tuberculosis Biomarkers (MARK-TB) has created a collaborative biobank in order to accelerate the development of new drugs and treatments for tuberculosis by validating and exploring biomarkers of response to TB drug treatments. The biobank will

The Microbicide Trials Network (MTN) is a NIAID-funded worldwide collaborative clinical trials network focused on preventing the sexual transmission of HIV. The MTN accepts concepts for new protocols, ancillary study proposals, secondary data analysis requests, and dataset requests.

This service provides evaluation of products that have already been evaluated in a biochemical or cell-based assay and shown to possess an activity profile that warrants further development as a microbicide.

The Multicenter AIDS Cohort Study (MACS) is an ongoing prospective study of the natural and treated histories of HIV-1 infection in homosexual and bisexual men conducted by sites located in Baltimore, Chicago, Pittsburgh and Los Angeles.

The MACS collects and stores a variety of biological specimens. Inventory may be housed at the national level or a subset at the local level. The MACS Center for the Coordination and Analysis of MACS (CAMACS) coordinates and facilitates completion of specimen requests. 

The National Swine Resource and Research Center (NSRRC) was established in 2003 to develop the infrastructure to ensure that biomedical investigators across a variety of disciplines have access to critically needed swine models of human health and disease.
