NCT Virtual Hub
Syn-Bio: The Threat of Designer Pathogens
August 3, 2021
For our fourth NCT Virtual Hub, our panelists will be looking into another CBRNe challenging topic: SynBio and the Threats of Designer Pathogens! Since the completion of the human genome project in 2003, a surge of investments and discoveries has sparked in the fields of gene sequencing and synthetic biology and biotechnology. However, such advancements give rise to new security challenges! Improvements in the accuracy, accessibility, and speed of synthesis technologies and their possible use by malicious actors pose the risk of potentially newly emerging bioterrorism weapons and agents. What is the international stance regarding this threat? How can we deal with it? Which mechanisms exist to tackle it?
