The Frederick National Laboratory is a Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) operated by Leidos
Biomedical Research, Inc., (formerly SAIC-Frederick, Inc.) for the National Cancer Institute (NCI), part of the
U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH). FNLCR is a government-owned, contractor-operated facility, one of the
nation's 39 FFRDC's and the only one devoted
exclusively to biomedical research and development.
Frederick National Lab provides quick response capabilities and meets special long-term research and development
needs for NCI that cannot be met as effectively by existing in-house or contractor resources. The FFRDC also supports
other institutes of NIH and wide range of research collaborations and partnerships
with third parties, consistent with NCI's mission.
The Frederick National Laboratory conducts basic, translational, and preclinical
research and development in cancer and AIDS. FNLCR investigators and technical staff collaborate with other government
agencies, academic institutions, life-science companies, and nonprofit research organizations to develop the next
generation of tests and treatments that will benefit families affected by cancer.
The lab has established a program through which outside organizations
-- including life science companies and other commercial entities -- can enter directly into cooperative research
and development agreements with Leidos Biomedical Research. These agreements can accommodate the development of
new technologies for research, or for clinical applications that benefit patients. Under the agreements, partners
can have first option to exclusive or nonexclusive commercial license.
The Frederick National Lab offers education, training, and
professional development, as well as expert consultation in quality control, regulatory affairs, and patient
safety. As a national resource, FNLCR helps biomedical scientists form a solid bridge between basic research and
clinical practice, with support that is not readily available elsewhere.
