Balancing Biosecurity, The Public’s Health, and The Benefits of Scientific Openness

This book tackles the thorny issue of how several distinct communities – bioscience research, public health, and national security – relate to each other in the complicated post-September 11 legal and policy environment. While tensions between science and government have a long pedigree, this study brings the story up to date, and outlines some of the passionate disagreements that have arisen over new limitations and requirements imposed on scientific research in the biosciences since the anthrax scare and the enduring concern about terrorism and weapons of mass destruction.
