The Ohio Center of Excellence for Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response

The mission of the proposed Center of Excellence for the Study of High Consequence Event Preparedness and Response is to investigate the risks, vulnerabilities, and consequences of potential terrorist events employing weapons of mass destruction; to specifically examine the preparedness and response posture of the United States, identifying and redressing gaps in the technical understanding of the deterrence, detection, use, response and long-term recovery from such weapons by a program of focused research.   Research ranges from highly technical engineering (e.g., state-of-the-art sensor development) and modeling/simulation to practical qualitative measures of response-plan adequacy. The research program is tightly coupled with both broad-based and specialized education programs for undergraduates, graduate students, and scholars.  The Center is a direct resource to the Department of Homeland Security, and in addition to research and education functions, provides independent assessments and expertise as requested.
