As the nation's health protection agency, CDC is on the lookout 24/7 for health threats from new or drug-resistant microbes. In this Director's Briefing video, CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden talks about how advanced-molecular detection (AMD) tools such as molecular sequencing and bioinformatics are revolutionizing CDC's approach towards investigating and controlling disease outbreaks. These next generation tools will help CDC find and stop killer microbes before they spread -- protecting Americans from a "perfect storm" of increasing disease threats -- but only if we move forward with these new technologies now.
