One of the missions of LIDR is to facilitate collaborations between MU faculty and investigators who are interested to conduct research here at LIDR. We would like to invite investigators from academia, government and industry 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 and 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.
