Advanced Molecular Detection (AMD)
Imagine doing a 10,000-piece jigsaw puzzle in the time it takes to finish a 100-piece puzzle. Apply that to infectious disease control, and that’s AMD at work. Now imagine putting together that 10,000-piece puzzle when key pieces are missing, disease is spreading, and people are dying. AMD gives CDC scientists the “key pieces” they need to protect people from ever-changing infectious disease threats.
