– Emergent BioSolutions, a Maryland company that makes the only federally licensed anthrax vaccine, has had to overcome lingering questions about the safety of its vaccine, which has caused controversy in the military. Soldiers have complained about significant side effects, and some have refused to be injected. A court battle temporarily stopped mandatory vaccinations, but the military resumed vaccinations after the Food and Drug Administration said the product was safe and effective. Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, said the FDA’s ruling has not persuaded everyone in the skeptical vaccine community. "The vaccine," he said, "does not have a good reputation in the medical science community."

– While working on Maryland’s Eastern Shore several years ago, Sherrilyn Ifill, JD, associate professor at the School of Law, didn’t expect to confront a segment of that area’s shameful past. The last two lynchings on the Eastern Shore occurred nearly 80 years ago. But during her investigations into discrimination against low-income families in Maryland, Ifill kept hearing from residents who had seen the lynchings or heard stories about them as they were growing up. The result is an exploration of the Eastern Shore’s history of lynching, On the Courthouse Lawn: Confronting the Legacy of Lynching in the Twenty-first Century
Monday, March 26, 2007Professor Michael GreenbergerInside FERC
– A Senate probe of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and Commodity Futures Trading Commission oversight of the gas futures markets has opened up a flood of information pouring into the panel heading the inquiry. Meantime, Senate Energy and Natural Resources Chairman Jeff Bingaman continued to openly question the FERC response to his inquiry. Bingaman’s probe earned praise from Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and a former director of trading and markets for the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. "When you think about it, it makes a lot of sense," Greenberger said. "This is a sobering inquiry. [Bingaman] has got his eye on the ball."

- Giant X-ray machines and hand-held radiation detectors are used in U.S. and overseas ports to scan cargo containers, but the technology isn't very reliable, experts say. Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, said technology being developed includes sensors that can track the movement of containers and scanning equipment that uses penetrating gamma rays. "There is technology on the horizon," he said. "If we really put our minds to it, we could deploy it%85within a three-year period."
