Seattle Biomedical Research Institute is the largest independent, non-profit organization in the United States focused solely on infectious disease research. Seattle BioMed combines scientific excellence with urgency, focus and enthusiasm in our mission to eliminate the world's most devastating infectious diseases. Our scientists' research is the basis for new vaccines, drugs and diagnostics that benefit those who need our help most: the 14 million people who will otherwise die each year from infectious diseases including malaria, HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis. Founded in 1976, Seattle BioMed has nearly 325 staff members. By partnering with key collaborators around the globe, we strive to make discoveries that will save lives sooner. Imagine a world free from infectious disease. At Seattle BioMed, we do.
