Incorporated: 1976 in WA
Also Known As: Seattle Biomedical Research Institute , Seattle BioMed
Center for Infectious Disease Research's (CIDR) research stems from a deep understanding of pathogen biology, the human immune system, and the interactions between them. CIDR seeks to overcome the grand challenges of infectious disease research, which prevent the development of vaccines, drugs, and diagnostics from moving forward. Through pursuing their goals un-siloed by disease archetype, they are achieving science on a grand scale. CIDR pioneered systems biology approaches to understand the complexity in biology, applied these approaches in the context of innate immunity, and is currently applying systems biology approaches to the host-pathogen interfaces we study.
Education & Training: Education and training is an integral part of the Center's mission. Some of CIDR's training opportunities include:
- Through hands-on learning experiences, the BioQuest science education program propels high school students into the real world of science.
- The Global Health Internship Program provides an opportunity for highly qualified undergraduate interns to work side-by-side with CIDR researchers.
- Select graduate students have the opportunity to perform their thesis work at the Center, and further training in their Postdoctoral Program is available for scientists who've recently received their doctoral degrees.
