Development of the Laboratory Response Network (LRN)

The Laboratory Response Network (LRN) was created under presidential directive as part of the government bioterrorism response program. The initial partners included the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL). The LRN became operational in 1999. Due to limited ability to respond to a bioterrorism event, the initial objective was to improve the nation's public health laboratory infrastructure.
