Professor Margaret E. Kosal was recently cited on biodefense policy and funding by the Pentagon, in an article in the Boston Globe.

"There is a fundamental need for basic science. The low-hanging fruit has all been picked," said Margaret Kosal, Assistant Professor in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs, about the limitations of genetic science that have prevented the success of the Pentagon’s program to develop treatments for troops and civilians infected in a germ warfare attack. Kosal worked on the program between 2006 and 2007. 

Margaret E. Kosal is an Assistant Professor at The Sam Nunn School of International Affairs. Prof. Kosal is the Program Co-Director for the Emerging Technology and Security program, and the Director of the Biological and Chemical on Proliferation and Counterterrorism program.
