USAMRIID is an acronym for the United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases. The facility is operated by the Department of Defense and serves as the country's principal laboratory for research into the medical aspects of biological warfare and lead laboratory for medical biological defense research, since 1969.
While their core mission is to protect the warfighter from biological threats, they also investigate disease outbreaks and threats to public health. Research conducted at USAMRIID leads to medical solutions—therapeutics, vaccines, diagnostics, and information—that benefit both military personnel and civilians. USAMRIID is a subordinate laboratory of the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command.
Their vision is right product at right time for the warfighters and their core competencies are • Conducting research on biological agents
• Maintaining safety, security and surety standards
• Testing and evaluation of medical countermeasures
• Rapid identification of biological agents
• Training and educating the force
USAMRIID develops new, faster diagnostic assays for medical identification to protect the warfighter against biological threats. They also evaluate and develop diagnostic instruments and technologies for use in forward field medical laboratories and with the Joint Biological Agent Identification and Detection System (JBAIDS), the diagnostics platform used across the DoD. USAMRIID is proud to be a founding member of the National Interagency Confederation for Biological Research, and will continue to support and collaborate with other agencies conducting research to benefit military and public health.
