Since 1969, USAMRIID has served as the Department of Defense's (DoD) lead laboratory for medical biological defense research.  While our core mission is to protect the warfighter from biological threats, we 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 Development Command.
