Programs

United States Army Medical Research Institute for Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID)

USAMRIID is the lead medical research laboratory for the US Army's Biological Defense Research Program. You will see the facilities and laboratory environment that enable investigators in the Institute to safely study biology of life-threatening pathogens in Biosafety Level 4 maximum containment suites. Students will take a walking tour through the institute. Highlights include viewing the BL4 containment suite and learning about USAMRIID's genomics center. The tour will also include the visiting the insectary followed by a tour through a BL3 containment suite.

No cell phones or cameras will be permitted on this tour.

USDA-ARS-Foreign Disease-Weed Science Research Unit

Tour USDA-ARS-DFWSRU's propagation and insectary greenhouses; virtually tour our containment greenhouse. Understand our unique mission and the resources needed and used to complete our research goals.


National Cancer Institute Campus at Frederick

Students will receive a brief introductory lecture (30') to fluorescence microscopy with examples about how it is used to study proteins in action in cells. The lecture will be followed by a tour of one of the optical microscope labs to actually see cells and tissue being imaged.
