HLS-645 Pandemics, Bioterrorism, and Biosecurity

Resurging epidemics are now gaining national attention in a way not seen for generations. These threats join the long-standing challenge of potential domestic and foreign state sponsored biowarfare attacks on the U.S. and growing awareness of the threat of bioterrorism. This course will examine the national and international political, legal, and policy dimensions of response to these threats. It will explore how the interagency community works at local, tribal, state, national, and international levels to meet these growing challenges.
