The dangers are real.


Biological threats—natural, intentional or accidental—could kill millions and cost billions.

As COVID-19 has vividly demonstrated, the risk of a catastrophic biological event is magnified by an increasingly interconnected world, challenged by political instability, urbanization, climate change, and new technologies that make it easier, cheaper, and faster to create and engineer pathogens.
