About Clinicians' Biosecurity News

Clinicians' Biosecurity News (CBN) is a twice monthly email newsletter that provides timely updates and expert synopses of new developments in a range of clinical research and practice areas that intersect with biosecurity and health security: infectious diseases, medical management, drug development, hospital and healthcare system preparedness, public health preparedness, and public policy.

CBN articles interpret and highlight biosecurity implications of new research findings and clinical issues for salient current events. Our reports also identify areas in need of research and public policy development. And when unusual events and emerging outbreaks occur, Clinicians' Biosecurity News publishes time-stamped updates and issue briefs, as we did with the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic.

Clinicians' Biosecurity News is published by JHSPH Center for Health Security and does not purport to advance any official positions of UPMC. JHSPH Center for Health Security maintains editorial control of all material published on the CBN (see Terms of Use for more information).
