Event description

Description

For over two decades, the Defense Threat Reduction Agency’s Cooperative Biological Engagement Program (CBEP) has endeavored to reduce the threat posed by especially dangerous pathogens and related materials and expertise, as well as other emerging infectious disease risks. Through collaboration with other U.S. government agencies and international partners, CBEP identifies and addresses gaps in human and animal public health systems, enhance biosafety and biosecurity standards and procedures, and strengthens the ability of human and animal public health laboratories to detect, diagnose, and report outbreaks of infectious disease. Recently, CBEP collaboration has increased with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA), enabling CBEP to advance its security goals across the GHSA countries.

Recognizing that it must coordinate with a host of domestic and international agencies and organizations, CBEP has requested a consensus study to be conducted by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NAESM) to engage key partners of biological and health-security support, and to assist in articulating a vision for a coherent and harmonized set of programs that align with the larger DTRA, DOD, and USG missions. The overall objectives of the NASEM study are to help CBEP and its sister programs to be as effective as possible while ensuring that critical opportunities are not inadvertently missed.

The NASEM study committee invites you to attend the first of its meetings, to be held on April 23-24, 2018, in the Keck Center (500 Fifth Street, NW). Confirmed speakers include Dr. Lance Brooks of CBEP/DTRA, Dr. Rebecca Martin of CDC, Dr. Terry Rauch of DOD, Dr. Hillary Carter of the National Security Council, Dr. Scott Dowell of the Gates Foundation, and Dr. Peter Daszak of EcoHealth Alliance. We strongly encourage you to RSVP to ensure sufficient space, materials, and refreshments for all attendees. A full public agenda will be available to those who RSVP.

April 23, 2018: 12:30 – 5:30 pm
April 24, 2018: 9:00 – 5:00 pm
