Infectious Disease Research Institute (IDRI)
IDRI's mission is to develop novel, advanced products for the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of neglected diseases of poverty. IDRI brings diverse talents and resources together and applies them to solve intractable global health problems. Our emphasis on the final goal line — products on the market — sets us apart from other not for profit research groups. We strive to apply the world's best science to the world's worst diseases, and to do so through collaborations and teamwork.
With a track record of success and a vision of a healthier future, IDRI is a leader in translating science into global health solutions. Our programs in tuberculosis, leishmaniasis, leprosy, malaria, and Chagas Disease combine cutting-edge science with a pragmatic focus on products that change the course of these diseases. We approach seemingly intractable diseases with comprehensive solutions: diagnostics for early detection, allowing early drug therapy, coupled with vaccine development to ultimately eradicate disease.
