National Biosurveillance Integration Center
The National Strategy for Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosives (CBRNE) Standards lays out the federal vision and goals to achieve a comprehensive structure for coordination, establishment, and implementation of CBRNE equipment standards by 2020.
The proposed National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility (NBAF) would research high-consequence biological threats involving zoonotic (i.e., transmitted from animals to humans) and foreign animal diseases.
The National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasures Center (NBACC™) applies science to challenges critical to defending the nation against bioterrorism. The Department of Homeland Security's Directorate for Science and Technology established the NBACC to be a national resource to understand the scientific basis of the risks posed by biological threats and to attribute their use in bioterrorism or biocrime events.
