National Institute of Infectious Diseases conducts and supports basic and applied research to better understand, treat, and ultimately prevent infectious, immunologic, and allergic diseases. For more than 60 years, NIAID research has led to new therapies, vaccines, diagnostic tests, and other technologies that have improved the health of millions of people in the United States and around the world. Our scientists study all aspects of infectious diseases from bench to bedside. With the help of support and administrative staff, they work to find ever better methods of disease prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.
NIAID is composed of four extramural divisions:
the Division of AIDS, the Division of Allergy, Immunology and Transplantation, the Division of Microbiology and Infectious Diseases, and the Division of Extramural Activities.
major areas of investigation includes:
• Emerging Diseases. New diseases are arising worldwide and old diseases are re-emerging as infectious agents evolve or spread and as changes occur in ecology, socioeconomic conditions, and population patterns.
NIAID conducts and supports research on Lyme disease, hantavirus, multidrug-resistant tuberculosis, and other emerging diseases to develop new or improved diagnostics, treatment, and vaccines.
• Enteric Diseases. Worldwide, diarrheal diseases such as cholera and rotavirus are a major cause of illness and death in infants and children. In contrast, viral hepatitis in its various forms, can cause severe disease in older children and adults, although it produces few symptoms among younger age groups. NIAID supports basic research on how enteric agents cause illness as well as studies aimed at developing and testing vaccines to prevent enteric infections.
