The Walter Reed Army Institute of Research (WRAIR) was founded in 1893 as the Army Medical School and today is the U.S. Department of Defense’s largest and most diverse institute of biomedical research. WRAIR encompasses cutting-edge research facilities including biosafety level 3 laboratories and animal research, as well as a vaccine pilot bioproduction facility. In addition to its biomedical research, WRAIR runs the Multidrug-Resistant Organism Repository and Surveillance Network (MRSN), the largest and most comprehensive network for identifying multidrug-resistant pathogens. In support of the work carried out at its facilities in Maryland, WRAIR has overseas laboratories and conducts cooperative research in Asia, Africa, and Europe. WRAIR’s largest overseas laboratory is the Armed Forces Research Institute of Medical Sciences (AFRIMS), located in Bangkok, Thailand. AFRIMS has well-established clinical trial sites for both drug and vaccine trials, and AFRIMS investigators are working to develop drugs and vaccines for multiple infectious diseases including malaria and dengue.
