Statement from the Department of Microbiology & Immunology on Racism

“To our Black colleagues in this time of trauma and moving forward: we hear your voices, we see your struggles and pain, and we stand in solidarity with you.”

Nuclear Security Summit

The COVID-19 pandemic abruptly brought our attention to the daunting challenges of disaster management on both national and global scales.

The 2020 Nuclear Security Summit will provide a venue for examining the elements of disaster management and identifying successes as well as areas for continuing development.
