FAQ

 
Is your site about biodefense, biosecurity, biosurveillance, or biopreparedness?

All of the above and more. We believe the technology, research, funding, and policy for existing and emerging biological threats are intertwined across these classifications and interwoven with larger CBRN and infectious disease efforts. Increasingly, funding and research emphasis is placed on cross-discipline and multi-use solutions. We have chosen to umbrella these related issues under the term Global Biodefense.
