This fall marks the tenth anniversary of the anthrax attacks and the U.S. biosecurity community born in response. The shocking anthrax attacks in 2001 galvanized government and private sector action and put us on a determined path to reduce the dangers posed by biological threats. This is an appropriate moment for the community to consider the impressive distance that we’ve traveled since 2001, to understand the options ahead for biosecurity policy, and to map out priorities for future action at this 10-year point.

Crossroads in Biosecurity: Steps to Strengthen U.S. Preparedness, was published by the Center for Biosecurity September 8, 2011, to mark the 10th anniversary of the 2001 anthrax attacks. Go to Crossroads in Biosecurity
