What is the NIH Twinbrook cluster?
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Twinbrook cluster is a group of
leased facilities in Rockville, Maryland, less than five miles from the
NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland. These buildings house more than 700
NIH staff and more than 450,000 square feet of research and
NIH occupied its first lab facility at Twinbrook
in 1980. Since then, Twinbrook has developed into a cluster of six
buildings housing a variety of Institutes and research programs.
NIAID plans to uses Twinbrook III labs to develop new and improved
vaccines, therapeutics and diagnostics against infectious diseases such
as malaria, influenza and West Nile virus.
The work at Twinbrook III
includes basic, preclinical and clinical research in immunology,
virology, vaccinology, parasitology and molecular biology. Most of these
research activities are extensions of NIAID programs already underway
at other facilities in the Twinbrook cluster.
