The Armed Forces Research Institute of Medical Sciences, otherwise known as AFRIMS, is a Special Foreign Activity of the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research (WRAIR) that is mainly located in Bangkok, Thailand.

AFRIMS is one of the most premiere tropical medicine research laboratories in the world that is designed to develop new deployable and nondeployable products that would detect, prevent and control infectious diseases, and to conduct surveillance of endemic and emerging infectious diseases in tropical countries.

In line with this, AFRIMS has recently announced the WRAIR Medical Tropical Research Laboratory Program(MTRLP) Infectious Disease Research Award(IDRA), a funding opportunity which solicits proposals that aim to tackle basic, preclinical and clinical research of emerging infectious diseases in Thailand and a certain region in Southeast Asia.
