Biosecurity Program

The Biosecurity Program is focused on global risk analysis, detection, prevention, mitigation, response and control of emerging infectious diseases and bioterrorism. We conduct research on emerging infectious diseases, rapid epidemic surveillance, field response, bioterrorism, bio-intelligence, and health security in a changing biotechnology landscape. We research the rapid detection and prevention of these threats. Our research includes prevention by both pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical means such as personal protective equipment and vaccines. The program engages widely with stakeholders from all disciplines involved in large scale epidemic response, such as health, field epidemiology, emergency management, defence, law enforcement, legal and ethics experts.
