Center for Civilian Biodefense Studies co-sponsors symposium
With weapons of biological and chemical terrorism in the headlines and firmly on the nationšs public agenda, political leaders, physicians, research scientists and law enforcement and intelligence experts will meet Feb. 16 and 17 in Arlington, Va., to talk about what to do should bioterrorists launch an assault on civilians in the United States. Donna Shalala, secretary of health and human services, will give the keynote address.
"This is a timely and urgent agenda," says D.A. Henderson, director of the
new Hopkins Center for Civilian Biodefense Studies, a co-sponsor of the symposium, and the
person credited with leading the World Health Organization's successful fight to eradicate
smallpox from the world.

An expanded summer session offers Hopkins students, visiting undergraduates and
