"Biosecurity," Belfer Center Directors' Lunch with Tara O'Toole, CEO and Director of the Center for Biosecurity at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, former Assistant Secretary of Eneery for Environment Safety and Health.

As governments address two of the most significant threats to their citizens - a human version of Avian Influenza (H5N1) and a terrorist attack - the Center for Biosecurity works on their nexus - preventing the development and use of biological weapons. The Center brings together advances in science and governance to diminish the power of bioweapons as agents of mass lethality, and to lesson the human suffering that would result if prevention fails.
