In August 2007, Congress established the National Biosurveillance Integration Center (NBIC) within the Department of Homeland Security to enhance the Nation's capability to integrate biosurveillance efforts. The Nation has many robust biosurveillance capabilities; yet some of these capabilities are relatively uncoordinated among the various entities responsible for surveillance, analysis, and mitigation/remediation responses that typically report to national level authorities. The NBIC serves as the designated government entity to synthesize and analyze information collected from across the spectrum of these organizations.

Since 1954, the DHS S&T Office of National Laboratories (ONL) Plum Island Animal Disease Center (PIADC) has served as the nation’s premier defense against accidental or intentional introduction of transboundary animal diseases (a.k.a. foreign animal diseases) including foot-and-mouth disease (FMD). PIADC is the only laboratory in the nation that can work on live FMD virus (FMDV). The lab and its staff of nearly 400 employees provide a host of high-impact, indispensable preparedness and response capabilities, including vaccine R&D, diagnostics, training, and bioforensics among others.
