Scientists Meet At Reese To Discuss Bioterrorism

Eighty scientists met Tuesday in Lubbock to discuss the latest defense measures against chemical and biological attacks. The meeting was held at the Institute of Environmental and Human Health Building at Reese Technology Center.

The group of scientists, from Texas Tech and around the country, has been active for four years. But, their research has taken on increased importance since 9-11, the Anthrax scare and the recent SARS outbreak. "They're working on various modeling and simulation activities therapeutics, new fabrics to reduce or eliminate exposure," says Dr. Ronald Kendall, of the Institute of Environmental and Human Health at Texas Tech.

At Texas Tech alone, Kendall says there are currently 13 research programs involving 50 faculty members.
