Emerging Infectious Diseases Laboratory Fellowship Program

On This Page


A partnership has been established between the Association of State and Territorial Public Health Laboratory Directors and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to develop and initiate an emerging infectious diseases laboratory fellowship program in January 1996. A goal of this fellowship program is to strengthen local, state, and federal public health infrastructures to support surveillance and implement prevention and control programs. The fellowship program will help recruit and train microbiologists for laboratories nationwide and provide opportunities for doctoral level scientists to conduct high-priority infectious disease research.

The emerging infectious diseases fellowship program will offer a 2-year laboratory research track for doctoral level scientists, with emphasis on applied research or development in infectious diseases and a 1-year advanced laboratory training track for bachelor's and master's level scientists, with emphasis on the practical application of emerging infectious diseases technologies, methods, and practices. Fellow training and research will take place at CDC and state and local public health laboratories.
