IDSA Members Appointed to the National Biodefense Science Board

IDSA members Ruth Berkelman, M.D., FIDSA, Andrew Pavia, M.D., FIDSA, and Patrick Scannon, M.D., Ph.D., were appointed to the National Biodefense Science Board. The mission of the Board is to advise the Secretary of Health and Human Services on issues surrounding naturally occurring infectious diseases and chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear agents. 

The Board was recently established under the 2006 Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness Act. As a result of the Board's first meeting, held in December in Washington, D.C., four working subcommittees were formed to look at pandemic influenza research (chaired by Dr. Pavia), the U.S. government’s advanced development portfolio of chemical, biological, nuclear, and radiological countermeasures (chaired by Dr. Scannon), disaster medicine, and gaps in the medical countermeasure marketplace.
