The Blue Ribbon Study Panel on Biodefense would like to inform you of this SRA Continuing Education workshop at the 2017 Society for Risk Analysis Annual Meeting with Ex Officio George Poste on Dec 10, 2017 in Arlington, VA

Information systems, as well as thinking, training, legislation and policies have lagged behind the momentous changes in science, leaving us vulnerable to population-level harm from bioterrorism.

This workshop will introduce participants to game-changers in biosecurity, and explore new approaches to risk analysis.  It will also cover methods for predictive modeling which can assist in risk analysis and rapid identification of epidemics, as well as tools for differentiating natural and unnatural epidemics.

  • Dr. Raina MacIntyre, UNSW Sydney, Arizona State University and Global Security PLuS
