Event description

Description

Please join us on September 27 from 12:00-1:30 PM for a luncheon and informal discussion on Global Catastrophic Biological Risks (GCBRs), led by the Director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, Dr. Thomas Inglesby. Dr. Inglesby will review the Center's recent attention on GCBRs, and how the synthesis of horsepox by a Canadian researcher has moved the needle on the necessity of discussing these potential future events.

This meeting is the second in a series of biological, chemical, and health security discussions to address compelling topics and to provide a forum for engagement among the DC-based community interested in biosecurity issues. The lunch will take place at the Keck Center of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (located at 500 Fifth Street NW, Washington, DC). The event is free and lunch will be provided, but space is limited, so you must register to attend this event.

If registration has closed and you would like to be added to a listserv that will alert you of the next biosecurity luncheon event, please email BLS@nas.edu and indicate as such. Also, please feel free to share this announcement with your colleagues!
