IDRI has an outstanding record of performance in the battle against global infectious diseases. After 20 years, we have concrete progress to celebrate: diagnostics on the market, vaccines in clinical trials and drugs in development.

As an independent, nonprofit research institute, IDRI also has a record of focusing our human and financial resources where they matter most – on the research and product development capabilities that result in new solutions. We are a nimble, lean organization, leveraging our funding to fulfill our mission.


We invite you to join us by making an investment in improving the health of the world. Your gift to IDRI will:

  • Support the discovery of world-class technologies that are being used to create life-saving diagnostics, drugs and vaccines..
  • Enable the development of much-needed products that get to the people who need them most.


Chinese girlUsing IDRI technologies, this little girl from China was diagnosed with leprosy, a Biblical-era disease still prevalent in 24 countries. By capturing the disease early – up to one year before traditional diagnostic methods – and starting treatment, she’ll be spared the devastating physical and social effects of leprosy. This is the impact of IDRI’s mission.

With your support, we can extend this impact as we strive to develop products to diagnose, prevent and treat the world’s most devastating infectious diseases, including malaria, tuberculosis, leishmaniasis, leprosy, HIV and others. Donate today.
