Division and Office Overviews
NCEZID is made up of seven divisions that work with partners throughout the United States and around the world to prevent illness, disability, and death caused by a wide range of infectious diseases— from the rare but deadly, like anthrax and Ebola, to the more common, like foodborne disease and healthcare-associated infections. Because the diverse workforces of these seven divisions include an equally broad spectrum of infectious disease expertise, we are better able to identify mysterious—and sometimes very lethal— illnesses, contain outbreaks that sometimes span many states, and save lives.
In addition to divisions, there are two offices based in NCEZID—the Office of Advanced Molecular Detection and the One Health Office. These offices direct cross-cutting activities about high-priority topics for the center and the entire agency.
