  • Description:
    CSELS was established at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in October 2013, although the roots of our center are as old as CDC itself. CSELS tracks America’s health, strengthens laboratory networks, and helps to identify the most urgent health threats around the country and around the world. Our approximately 400 staff and 300 contractors focus on improving public health surveillance, laboratory systems, and information and data quality while also ensuring the development of a sustainable, highly-trained public health workforce. In 2015, we completed a process designed to streamline the management and operations of our center and keep us poised to continue delivering high-quality scientific support services to our partners both inside and outside CDC. We then embarked on a “bottom up” strategic planning process, guided by the priorities of our 4 divisions and more than 30 programs, to create an overarching Strategic Framework that captures the breadth of our work and provides a lens through which we can show you our story.

    This book represents the culmination of that strategic process. It describes the accomplishments and impact of our programs—some long-established and some brand new. Read about CDC flagship programs, such as the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report and the Epidemic Intelligence Service. Learn about some of CDC’s newest innovations, such as the National Syndromic Surveillance Program’s cloud-based Biosense 2.0 platform and the Laboratory Leadership Service Fellowship Program. The CSELS Strategic Framework describes the programs under the CSELS umbrella and introduces the leadership team. We also give you a preview of our priorities for the coming years in emerging health threats, laboratory safety, infrastructure upgrades, and the changing healthcare landscape.
