The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has approved reopening and partial operations of the US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID), the U.S. Department of Defense’s (DOD’s) lead laboratory for medical biological defense research. Over the summer, research was put on hold at the USAMRIID’s Fort Detrick, MD., location following a federal government-ordered shutdown that prompted a major reset of the institute’s biosafety program.
