Combating Bioterrorism / Pandemics: Implementing Policies for Biosecurity

The Combating Bioterrorism / Pandemics: Implementing Policies for Biosecurity course is a 3 day summer professional course offered by the Security Studies Program at MIT. The threats of bioterrorism and global pandemics pose new challenges for public health, law enforcement and national security agencies. All these agencies face new biosecurity priorities, including learning to collaborate with each other. Yet agencies have deeply embedded professional norms and organizational cultures, which resist change. MIT experts and affiliates explore the obstacles to implementation and strategies to overcome them.
