About Us

The Infectious Disease Clinical Research Program (IDCRP) was founded in 2005 under an interagency agreement between the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USU) and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). The program’s work is executed through a unique, adaptive and collaborative, international clinical research network. This network directly affects force readiness by advancing clin ical practice an d informing health p olicy for military personnel. In collaboration with partners from the Department of Defense (DoD), academia, government, and industry, IDCRP supports a broad clinical research portfolio within the Military Health System. From observational, longitudinal cohort studies to field-based interventional trials to evaluation of long term health outcomes, IDCRP conducts protocols that address critical knowledge gaps in the controland prevention of infectious disease in the military. Study outcomes have far-reaching implications for public health and disease pr evention b eyond military communities.
