An archived video of the National Institutes for Health/National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity December 2011 workshop is now available online. The workshop, “The Intersection of Science and Security: a Case Study Approach,” examined dual use research, life science research that has the potential to be misused to threaten public health or national security. The workshop included strategies for managing dual use research and case studies of how these issues are being addressed around the globe.
