Emerging Leaders in Biosecurity Initiative

The Center for Biosecurity of UPMC has launched the Emerging Leaders in Biosecurity Initiative, a competitive program that will develop and maintain a network of promising early career professionals from multiple disciplines who are considering future careers in biosecurity.
In this first year of the program, the Initiative will select up to 25 highly talented new professionals as Fellows from academia, government, defense, private industry, science, public health, medicine, and the social sciences. Fellows selected will be sponsored during the year to attend two biosecurity meetings, engage in networking opportunities with established leaders in the field, participate in a writing competition that can lead to publication and public presentation opportunities, and participate in educational webinars. Involvement in the Initiative will enable Fellows to develop leadership skills and connections that can propel them into a career in biosecurity.
Program description and application details available at:  (www.emergingbioleaders.org).
Applications must be submitted NLT March 15, 2012.
