    Labs in the time of Ebola : epidemic spurs laboratory innovation -- New vaccines to reduce an age-old scourge : developing new vaccines for people and animals -- A faster, easier screening test for diagnosing yellow fever : results that used to take 2 days to obtain now take only 4 hours -- Taking the bite out of mosquito-borne viruses : a new and more accurate diagnostic test for dengue virus -- A novel solution for preserving test samples : waterborne disease prevention experts develop a new universal liquid buffer -- Microscopes across the universe : electronic platform connects NCEZID pathologists with scientists around the world -- A one-stop shop for diagnosis : tweaking NCEZID’s online virtual reference laboratory -- Far from the contagious crowd : simulating how flu spreads -- Decoding Listeria : a deadly—and elusive—foodborne germ -- Probing antifungal resistance : a new, rapid, and cost-effective way to screen for resistance -- Measuring immune response to the new HPV vaccine : new test provides much-needed answers -- New tools and drugs to slow antibiotic resistance : providing raw material to develop new antibiotics and diagnostic tests -- Looking ahead : antibiotic resistance—where are we going?

    Pathogens, diseases, and people move across borders. Infectious diseases constantly evolve. Protecting Americans and people around the world demands that we develop better tools to address diverse threats—from familiar yet pernicious diseases like rabies to emerging and rapidly spreading viruses like chikungunya. We use laboratory testing, disease tracking, and epidemiologic investigations to keep infectious diseases at bay. This work requires continually stoking the pipeline with cutting- edge diagnostics and laboratory assays. We also stay on the hunt for innovative solutions, like finding a way for scientists on different sides of the globe to share the same microscope so they can identify a particularly elusive pathogen.

    To advance our mission of reducing illness and death from infectious disease, the National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases (NCEZID), in collaboration with partners, has developed the following new tests and tools to better protect people from these wide-ranging, ever-changing threats.
