A complete list of the proposals reviewed and a summary of the recommendations from each meeting are contained in Attachment 1. A detailed description of the proposal review process for 2000-2004 is provided in Attachment 2.
In developing these recommendations, committee members drew on their extensive expertise in biological weapons research and its peaceful applications, along with years of experience with biological weapons institutes in the Former Soviet Union. They also used their familiarity with a wide range of U.S. bioscientists to identify potential collaborators. A list of committee members is contained in Attachment 3.
We are pleased to have provided these assessments to DTRA over the past five years and look forward to continuing that assistance under the current contract.
