National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), conducts and supports research to better understand, treat, and ultimately prevent infectious, immunologic, and allergic diseases. NIAID’s Division of Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome was formed to develop and implement the national research agenda to address the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The division works to ensure an end to the HIV/AIDS epidemic by increasing basic scientific knowledge of the pathogenesis and transmission of HIV, supporting the development of HIV therapies for HIV infection and its complications and co-infections, and supporting the development of vaccines and other prevention strategies. NIAID’s Dale and Betty Bumpers Vaccine Research Center conducts research that facilitates the development of effective vaccines for human disease. The primary focus of research is the development of vaccines for AIDS. Learn more about NIAID's HIV/AIDS research.
