Description: The NSABB was established to provide advice, guidance and leadership regarding federal oversight of dual use research, defined as biological research with legitimate scientific purposes that could be misused to pose a biological threat to public health and/or other aspects of national security.

Given the heightened concerns about insider threats at organizations that work with highly pathogenic agents, the Federal government has charged the NSABB with recommending a personnel reliability program for individuals who work with Select Agents. A portion of their recommendations will address the measures that institutions should undertake to assess whether individuals are trustworthy and reliable to work with these agents.

The meeting will be conducted as a series of panels where participants will be asked to discuss particular topics relevant to NSABB deliberations.
