Appendix A

Study Methods

At the request of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (the National Academies) convened the Committee on Strengthening the Disaster Resilience of Academic Research Communities to explore the effects of disasters on the academic research community (i.e., biological and biomedical) and to provide guidance to individual researchers, research institutions, and sponsors regarding potential actions to be taken that may mitigate the impact of future disasters.

COMMITTEE EXPERTISE

The National Academies formed a committee of 13 experts to deliberate on and respond to the statement of task for the study. The committee was composed of members with expertise in disaster preparedness, the continuity of operations, academic administration, research facilities management, information technology, structural engineering, capital planning, earth and life sciences research, and the veterinary sciences. Appendix F provides biographical information for each committee member.

MEETINGS AND INFORMATION-GATHERING ACTIVITIES

The committee held five in-person meetings from March 2016–February 2017 (March, April, October, November, and February) and conducted one regional site visit to New York City (July). The March, April, and Novem-

ber meetings included portions open to the public; the agendas for these open sessions are included at the end of this appendix. The meeting in July was a 2-day site visit to New York City which included portions open to the public. The committee meetings in October and February were held only in closed session.

To inform its deliberations, the committee gathered information through a variety of mechanisms: (1) the 2-day meeting in March, which included an open public comment session; (2) the 1-day public workshop held in conjunction with the April meeting, which included an open public comment session; (3) the regional site visit to New York City, which included a 2-day public meeting; (4) the 2-day meeting in November, which included an open public comment session; (5) reviews of the literature on previous disasters that have affected the academic biomedical research community, as well as on guidance and best practices; (6) solicitation and consideration of written statements from stakeholders and members of the public through the committee’s Current Projects System (CPS) website and e-mail; and (7) personal communications among committee members, staff, and individuals who have been directly involved in or have special knowledge of the issues under consideration. All written information provided to the committee from external sources is available by request through the National Academies’ Public Access Records Office.

LITERATURE REVIEW

The National Academies’ staff conducted a literature review on topics that (1) explored the impacts of prior disasters on the academic biomedical research community; and (2) potential best practices, guidance, and policies that individual researchers, research institutions, and sponsors have implemented to mitigate the impact of future disasters. Other targeted literature reviews were conducted as novel issues arose throughout the committee’s deliberations.

The academic biomedical research community is a hub of employment, economic productivity, and scientific progress. Academic research institutions are drivers of economic development in their local and state economies and, by extension, the national economy. Beyond the economic input that the academic biomedical research community both receives and provides, it generates knowledge that in turn affects society in myriad ways.

The United States has experienced and continues to face the threat of disasters, and, like all entities, the academic biomedical research community can be affected. Recent disasters, from hurricanes to cyber-attacks, and their consequences have shown that the investments of the federal government and of the many other entities that sponsor academic research are not uniformly secure. First and foremost, events that damage biomedical laboratories and the institutions that house them can have impacts on the safety and well-being of humans and research animals. Furthermore, disasters can affect career trajectories, scientific progress, and financial stability at the individual and institutional levels.

Strengthening the Disaster Resilience of the Academic Biomedical Research Community offers recommendations and guidance to enhance the disaster resilience of the academic biomedical research community, with a special focus on the potential actions researchers, academic research institutions, and research sponsors can take to mitigate the impact of future disasters.
