ew countermeasure against lethal pathogens. We intend to continue to explore opportunities to work collaboratively with the US government to protect the public health."

Secretary of HHS Kathleen Sebelius testified at the hearing that "In today's world, the range of threats is ever-widening to include biological, chemical, nuclear, and radiological hazards in addition to conventional threats." Secretary Sebelius went on to say that "the greatest danger we may face is a microbe that we may have never seen before and for which we do not have a countermeasure.  We clearly need the capacity to develop a medical countermeasure quickly."  Senator Tom Harkin, Chairman of the Committee, added that the US Government "needs a stronger partnership with biotech companies that could produce next-generation countermeasures."
