All research within the IDCRP is focused on clinical questions associated with militarily important infectious disease risks. Infectious disease may impact training and readiness at the individual or unit level and nearly always have significant impact on the nonmilitary populations as well. Through the design, conduct and analysis of high quality research and the subsequent communication and discussion of results, the IDCRP strives to provide evidence based information and analysis that can inform DoD Force Health Protection Policy and /or facilitate further research questions.
