For a variety of reasons (including the fact that the instructor is on the main campus in Springfield, Missouri, and the university's graduate DDSS is located in Fairfax, Virginia), the decision was made to offer the chemical and biological warfare course exclusively online.
For the chemical and biological warfare course, the student is required to log onto the course website for a specific task at least 4 times each week.
In response to a national initiative to combat domestic chemical and biological warfare threats, in 1997 Sandia National Laboratories launched a program to develop effective decontamination technology.
We have made significant advances through our collaboration with the Department of Defense to develop a hand-held system for detecting the deployment of chemical and biological warfare agents," said Dr.
Electrochemical methods are used for sensitive detection of numerous chemical and biological warfare agents simultaneously, which can eliminate the need for cumbersome and expensive optical detection technologies.
