Fort Detrick is a United States Army Medical Command installation located in Frederick, Maryland. It houses a BSL4 facility. It was the centre of the US Biological Weapon Testing program from 1943-1969.

As of the early 2010s, Fort Detrick's campus supports a multi-governmental community that conducts biomedical research and development, medical materiel management, global medical communications and the study of foreign plant pathogens. It is home to the United States Army Medical Research and Materiel Command (USAMRMC), with its bio-defence agency, the US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID). Fort Detrick also hosts the National Cancer Institute-Frederick (NCI-Frederick)[1] and is home to the National Interagency Confederation for Biological Research (NICBR)[2] and National Interagency Biodefence Campus (NIBC).

Fort Detrick is the largest employer in Frederick County, Maryland.

2019 shutdown

In 2019 the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued Fort Detrick a “cease and desist order” to halt the research there because it did not have “sufficient systems in place to decontaminate wastewater.” In the statement, the CDC cited “national security reasons” as the rationale for not releasing information about its decision. "In 2009, research at the institute in Fort Detrick was suspended because it was storing pathogens not listed in its database."[3][4]
