(NYSE Amex: PIP), a biodefense company developing medical countermeasures against biological and chemical threats, today announced that the Company's Interim CEO, Eric I. Richman, will be participating on a special biosecurity panel presentation promoting the critical interrelationship between government, academia and industry in the development of medical countermeasures vital to our nation's biosecurity.
