Georgetown hosts forum to discuss government request of journals to redact scientific data
Date:2/10/2012

WASHINGTON Georgetown University hosts a panel discussion and open public forum about the recent request by the National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity (NSABB), which advises the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), to two premier scientific journals that they redact key information from unpublished manuscripts describing "dual use research" science that could have both good and bad purposes. The research in question involves a mutated H5N1 virus that could be contagious among humans, unlike the H5N1 avian flu viruses found worldwide since 1997. Such research could help scientists better predict, prevent, and treat such infections, but in the wrong hands, the virus could be used as a biological weapon.

The panel discussion, "Censoring Research on Contagious H5N1 Influenza in 2012? A Panel Discussion on Global Public Health, Legal, and Policy Controversies" will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 15th, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the New Research Building Auditorium on the campus of Georgetown University Medical Center. The panel is free and open to the public.

Panelists include:
John Kraemer, J.D., M.P.H., assistant professor of health systems administration
Georgetown University School of Nursing & Health Studies
Georgetown University Medical Center
(global public health law)

Paul Cote, Ph.D., professor, department of microbiology and immunology

(virologist and lecturer on influenza)

Jody Lanard, M.D., psychiatrist, Princeton, NJ
