Auditorium, Beckman Institute 405 N. Mathews Ave Urbana

Lessons from past bioterrorist events and operations of national biological warfare programs indicate otherwise. This talk clarifies what can be done by whom as to the criminal acquisition and use of biological weapons and how society may deter or manage such activities and their aftermath.
