The USAMRIID replacement facility provides the US Department of Defense and the Federal biodefense community with facilities and expertise to safely conduct research on the most virulent pathogens and biotoxins.  The facility’s innovations and research continue to yield state-of-the-art vaccines, drugs, and diagnostics to support the national biodefense effort against anthrax, small pox, botulinum, ebola, malaria, and other biothreats.
 
Merrick was engaged as the commissioning agent and provides commissioning documentation and a summary of Biosafety in Microbiological and Biomedical Laboratories compliance requirements necessary for the Centers for Disease Control and the US Department of Agriculture Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service.
