The CIHR-UBC Training Program for Translational Research in Infectious Diseases was funded by the Institute of Infection and Immunity of the Canadian Institute of Health Research (CIHR), as part of a federal strategic training initiative to build capacity within Canada.

The specific aims of this training program were 1) to promote and strengthen the national capacity for translational research in infectious diseases through an integrative training program, 2) to raise the national standards in health researchers, and 3) to cultivate and facilitate transdisciplinary and translational research in infectious diseases.

The TRID Program aimed at bridging gaps among basic and clinical sciences, epidemiology, and public health and preparing scientists for interdisciplinary collaborative research.
