Responding to Emerging Infectious Diseases

The Centers for Research in Emerging Infection Diseases (CREID) Network is a coordinated group of emerging infectious disease research centers situated in regions around the globe where emerging and re-emerging infectious disease outbreaks are likely to occur. Multidisciplinary teams of investigators will conduct pathogen/host surveillance, study pathogen transmission, pathogenesis and immunologic responses in the host, and will develop reagents and diagnostic assays for improved detection for important emerging pathogens and their vectors. They plan to prospectively develop a framework and the infrastructure necessary to respond quickly and effectively to future outbreaks.
