Funding for The Duke Infectious Disease Response Training (DIDRT) Consortium

The Duke Infectious Disease Response Training (DIDRT) Consortium will be funded at $381,080 total cost ($352,852 direct) per year, for three years.

The DIDRT consortium will provide infectious disease preparedness training for worker populations with important roles in response to future infectious disease events (first responders, transportation, custodial services, healthcare, clinical lab). The DIDRT Consortium will fulfill a core mandate for the NIAID Regional Biocontainment Laboratory and will establish Duke as a national center of excellence for infectious disease preparedness training.
