Report on CDC’s Internal Laboratory Activities

At the request of the U.S. Senate Committee on Appropriations, CDC delivered to the committee in early May 2012 a detailed report on CDC’s internal laboratory activities for FY 2011. The report highlights the extraordinary depth and breadth of CDC’s laboratory work to protect health in the United States and abroad. In addition, the report includes many examples of our laboratories’ health impacts, spanning virtually all the domains in which CDC works, including

  • Infectious diseases
  • Non-communicable diseases
  • Birth defects and developmental disabilities
  • Environmental health
  • Occupational health
  • Emergency preparedness

The report demonstrates that CDC’s laboratories are integral parts of our programs. CDC Director Tom Frieden, MD, MPH, underscores their importance, stating that “CDC’s laboratory scientists are at the heart of our work to protect America on a 24/7 basis. CDC could not succeed without them.”

Every CDC center and program that operates laboratories contributed to the planning, researching, and writing of the report, which is the first-ever picture of CDC’s laboratories across all of our national centers, institute, and offices. You can access the report here [PDF 872KB].
