NIH will hold a virtual meeting and listening session to engage stakeholders and gather feedback on the current U.S. Government oversight framework for research involving enhanced potential pandemic pathogens.
Specifically, NIH is interested in hearing from a wide range of stakeholders on the scope of the framework, strategies for minimizing potential biosafety and biosecurity risks, considerations for supporting international ePPP research and how to balance security with public transparency. This meeting and listening session will also help inform the deliberations and policy recommendations of the NSABB related to its current charge. Time will also be on the agenda for members of the public to provide comments at the meeting.
