Opening remarks will be given by NSRI Executive Director Bob Hinson, Lt Gen, USAF (ret). Following General Hinson’s remarks, Dr. Ken Bayles, Associate Vice Chancellor for Basic Science Research at UNMC will discuss transdisciplinary work in the realm of national security and combating weapons of mass destruction. He will highlight real-world events where chemical & biological agents are used and how the National Strategic Research Institute at the University of Nebraska is developing countermeasures using cross-disciplinary connections.
These transdisciplinary discussions bring together scientists, students, extension educators, business leaders, policymakers, farmers and others, allowing them to gather informally and make cross-disciplinary connections they might not otherwise make.
