Ongoing Programs

Antimicrobial Stewardship Project

Antimicrobial resistance is a critical global public health issue, and antimicrobial stewardship strategies are key to curtailing the problem. The CIDRAP Antimicrobial Stewardship Project (ASP) provides current, accurate, and comprehensive information on the topic and works to build an online community to address leading issues.

CEIRS Network Pandemic Research Response Planning

The CEIRS Network Pandemic Research Response Planning project is a cross-center collaborative initiative aimed at enhancing the CEIRS network’s ability to mobilize its scientific expertise and capabilities during an influenza pandemic or pre-pandemic situation and provide research-based knowledge to inform the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ overall public health response. 

Chronic Wasting Disease Resource Center

Chronic wasting disease (CWD) is an infectious prion disease that affects cervids such as deer, elk, and moose. CWD has been detected in at least 26 US states, three Canadian provinces, Scandinavia, and South Korea. To date, no human CWD infections have been documented, but the risk is not zero—and, given experience with similar prion diseases, prevention is critical.

Coronavirus Vaccines Roadmap

CIDRAP is leading an international collaborative effort to develop a coronavirus vaccines R&D roadmap (CVR). The CVR will focus on identifying key goals and milestones necessary to develop vaccines that provide broad protection against betacoronaviruses.

CIDRAP Leadership Forum

The CIDRAP Leadership Forum (CLF) is designed for organizations that require access to actionable information and expert perspective necessary to shape sound business practices in the face of rapidly emerging issues of public health importance, whether local, national, or international.

Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resource Center

CIDRAP is tracking and analyzing the rapidly evolving worldwide outbreak of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) disease that originated in China. The CIDRAP COVID-19 Resource Center provides a deep well of information for public health experts, business preparedness leaders, government officials, and the public.

About COVID-19

Influenza Vaccines Roadmap

CIDRAP is leading an international collaborative effort to develop an influenza vaccines R&D roadmap (IVR), aimed at accelerating progress toward universal or broadly protective influenza vaccines, one of the most critical global public-health priorities.

News Publishing

As a world-leading source of current, comprehensive, and authoritative information, CIDRAP’s news publishing division writes original news stories each business day and maintains in-depth information on influenza, bioterrorism, and the latest emerging infectious diseases.

Resilient Drug Supply Project

The Resilient Drug Supply Project (funded by a gift from the Walton Family Foundation) is the first end-to-end comprehensive effort to define and address vulnerabilities to the public health resulting from medical drug shortages.

Universal Influenza Vaccine Technology Landscape

CIDRAP is developing a universal influenza vaccines technology landscape, a database of influenza vaccines in clinical or late preclinical development. As a research tool, the landscape is intended to summarize available data on influenza vaccine candidates in development to help coordinate efforts across research groups and stimulate informed investments.

WHO Roadmap Development

CIDRAP has been selected to work closely with the WHO to develop R&D roadmaps for Ebola/Marburg, Nipah, and Lassa viruses. This work is being funded through support from Wellcome, a key partner in this undertaking.
