Need for the Program
  • NATIONAL BIODEFENSE EFFORT
  • The president's 2006 budget requests more than
    4 billion for biodefense at the Department of
    Health and Human Services (HHS). This money will
    fund biodefense activities within the HHS Office
    of the Secretary as well those of HHS
    subagencies, which include the Food and Drug
    Administration (FDA), the Centers for Disease
    Control and Prevention (CDC), the Health
    Resources and Service Administration (HRSA), and
    the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
  • Within the 2006 HHS budget, approximately 1.7
    billion is requested for the National Institute
    of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), a
    component of NIH, to accelerate development of
    new and improved vaccines, diagnostic tools, and
    therapies against potential agents of
    bioterrorism.

NIAID Laboratory Construction

The need for highly trained and qualified
leadership personnel for new and emerging BSL3
and BSL4 facilities is one of, if not the most
pressing issue in biosafety for the next decade.

  • Solution
  • The National Biosafety and Biocontainment
    Training Program

    biomedical, emerging disease and civilian
    biodefense research communities through the 21st
    century. Fellows will train specifically to
    support Biosafety Level 3 and 4 research
    environments by acquiring knowledge and skills
    necessary to meet the scientific, regulatory,
    biocontainment, biosafety, engineering,
    communications, management, and public relations
    challenges associated with the conduct of
    research in these facilities
