Prof. Greenberger: Increase Security of BSL Laboratories
Professor Michael Greenberger, JD, asked a U.S. Senate subcommittee to consider strengthening regulation and oversight of laboratories that conduct research and production of the most dangerous pathogens at a hearing on Sept. 22. Greenberger, who is also the director of the University of Maryland Center for Health and Homeland Security, identified problems within the existing BSL-3 and BSL-4 lab regulatory structure and offered recommendations to address those problems.
The hearing was held before the Senate Committee on the Judiciary Subcommittee on Terrorism and Homeland Security, chaired by Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin, a graduate of the School of Law.
