ABOUT THIS EVENT:
At the onset of World War II, the United States started a research and development effort to produce the world’s first nuclear weapons.
Military and federal agencies, academia, industry, government contractors, predecessors of today’s national laboratories, worked together with the city of Manhattan and other localities.
This meeting will discuss a Manhattan Project for Biodefense – a national, public-private research and development undertaking to defend the Nation against biological threats. These threats include biological warfare, bioterrorism, and infectious disease pandemics.
