The U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) 

USAMRIID works to investigate disease outbreaks and develop the most advanced protection for the United States Armed Forces against a biological attack or endemic disease.

These professionals maintain USAMRIID's scientific base in 5 critical areas:

Conducting research on biological agents…

Testing and evaluation of medical countermeasures…

Rapid identification of biological agents…

Training and educating the force…

And maintaining the highest standards of safety, security and biological surety.

USAMRIID also plays a key role as the only Department of Defense laboratory equipped to safely study highly hazardous diseases that require maximum containment at Biosafety Level 4.

To fulfill its mission, USAMRIID collaborates with universities, private industry, and other Federal agencies. Together, they conduct research leading to medical solutions—vaccines, treatments, diagnostics, and information—that benefit military personnel and civilians alike.
