What We Do

The Frederick National Laboratory is the only U.S. national lab wholly focused on research, technology, and collaboration in the biomedical sciences- working to discover, to innovate, and to improve human health.

We accelerate progress against cancer and AIDS by bridging the gap between late discovery and early development of diagnostics and therapeutics, by creating cross-cutting technology platforms, and by proposing new data standards.

Our team of 2,000 scientists, technicians, administrators, and support staff work at the forefront of basic, translational, and preclinical science.

Opportunities are available to:

These are just some of the lab’s areas of expertise. Explore many more opportunities by visiting the Science and Technology, Rapid Response, and Work With Us sections of our website.
