IIBR leads national efforts to counter any and all biological threats from intentional attacks as well as naturally-emerging diseases. Using a multi-disciplinary project strategy, combined with cutting edge technologies, we develop methods for the identification of various bio-threats; forensic investigation of bio-terror agents and pathogenesis mechanisms; design of new strategies for vaccine development, as well as evaluation of novel modalities of therapeutics.
IIBR research and development concerning environmental sciences ranges from numerical modeling to laboratory and field experiments in the areas of risk assessment meteorology and atmospheric contaminants. IIBR has developed capabilities that enable detection and identification of hazardous materials, weather and dispersion prediction, physical protection and evaluation of potential risks.
Toxicological evaluation at IIBR is followed by the generation of novel treatment protocols and drugs, rapid and effective solutions for damage prevention and control. These are gained by a combination of cutting-edge synthetic capabilities and an advanced analytical toolbox. All are based on comprehensive pharmacological and pathophysiological understanding and advanced experimental means.
