Recommending and promoting changes to U.S. policy and law to strengthen national biodefense while optimizing resource investments.

Commission Announces New Position to Lead Biodefense Policy and Research Efforts.

 

The Bipartisan Commission on Biodefense is seeking a Director of Policy and Research to develop and supervise the Commission’s biodefense policy and research agendas. The Commission, established in 2014, assesses the state of U.S. biodefense efforts and recommends changes to U.S. policy and law to strengthen national biodefense while optimizing resource investments. The Commissioners, all former high-ranking government officials, and the staff of four have conducted more than 20 public meetings and produced six reports, including the seminal A National Blueprint for Biodefense: Leadership and Major Reform Needed to Optimize Efforts. The pandemic of 2020 has shined a spotlight on the Commission’s work and this new Director of Policy and Research joins at an exciting time of high-intensity focus and rapid-growth.

  • The Bipartisan Commission on Biodefense is calling on the federal government to urgently implement the recommendations specified in its new report, The Apollo Program for Biodefense: Winning the Race Against Biological Threats, as COVID-19 continues to wreak havoc in the United States and all over the world.

At this November 2020 meeting, the Commission assessed the national response to COVID-19 as those activities relate to the recommendations of the Blueprint. More details on this meeting can be found here.
