Applications of biotechnology for infectious diseases

  • Description:
    CDC is actively engaged in the practical applications of this explosion of new technology to disease problems through a Congressional mandate. Until 1986, the principal methods used by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to transfer technology outside the Government were training, education, and information dissemination. In 1986, Congress passed the Federal Technology Transfer Act of 1986 to improve the link between the Federal laboratories’ technology base and U.S. businesses. This law and subsequent Executive Order 12591 (April 10, 1987) authorize Federal laboratories to patent and exclusively license inventions to and collaborate with businesses on research and development.

    The enclosed abstracts address the research in the application of increasingly complex technology to diagnostics. The application of basic research leads to improved diagnostic tools which in turn enhances epidemiology.
