The Standards References and Training Research Committee (STAR TREC) is a central hub to develop, deposit, and share standards and references in biological research. This initiative is confronting what’s been dubbed the scientific “reproducibility crisis.”



Whether you’re an expert in your field or just starting out, we have a career opportunity for you. We’re always looking for people to join us in fulfilling the mission of the Frederick National Laboratory: discovery, innovation, and success in the biomedical sciences.

Our team of 2,400+ scientists, technicians, administrators, and support staff work at the forefront of basic, translational, and preclinical science, with a focus on cancer, AIDS and other infectious diseases.
