The Center for Infectious Disease Research focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of military-relevant infectious diseases to maintain readiness in deployed forces. WRAIR's global network works with CIDR to prevent threats such as malaria, HIV/AIDS, dengue, diarrheal diseases, multidrug-resistant organisms, and emerging diseases such as Zika and Ebola.

The Center for Military Psychiatry and Neuroscience aims to protect brain health before, during, and after deployment by focusing on behavioral health, combat stress, sleep management, and brain injury. CMPN scientists have developed, validated, and implemented several training regimens to improve psychological resilience, elucidated and exploited the long-term relationship between sleep and performance, characterized and prevented blast and direct trauma to the brain, and helped identify blood biomarkers for diagnosis of concussion. 

The Center for Enabling Capabilities mission is to advance medical capability and countermeasure development through provision of world class, cost efficient, and professional research support. CEC researchers and personnel provides support capabilities from product to publication.
