Members of the University of Nebraska Medical Center / Nebraska Medicine’s Biocontainment Unit will share their experiences of treating Ebola and other infectious disease at a one-day symposium on March 11th.
Several organizations are teaming for the event including the US Strategic Command. U-S Air Force Retired Lt. General Bob Hinson is the director of the University of Nebraska National Strategic Research Institute and says infectious diseases are a threat to our country.
Hinson says, “It is a very powerful opportunity to demonstrate our technology and how we can benefit the nation in a lot of national security related issues.”
Experts from UNMC, the National Institutes of Health, Defense Threat Reduction Agency and the U-S Army Medical Research Institute for Infectious Diseases and other agencies are taking part.
The symposium starts at 8 am at Omaha’s Embassy Suites Hotel on south 10th Street.
