One of the missions of LIDR is to facilitate collaborations between MU faculty and investigators who are interested in conducting research at LIDR. We welcome investigators from academia, government and industries who wish to study infectious diseases or emerging infectious diseases research at LIDR. Research can be conducted in collaboration with the faculty at MU or independently. Subsidized rates have been approved for investigators from academia since LIDR is a federally funded facility. LIDR meets or exceeds all the requirements set forth by the CDC and NIH to work on select agents; in accordance, standard CDC rules and regulations will apply for all investigators and collaborators who conduct active research. Please contact us if you need any additional information.
