Dr. Ron Atlas

At the Fall 2001 Director’s Roundtable an obviously hot topic was of course Bioterrorism. Fortunately we had as a guest Dr. Ron Atlas who is considered a leading expert on the subject of Bioterrorism.

Dr. Atlas is a University of Louisville microbiology professor and president of the American Society for Microbiology. He is also the society’s co-chairman of the Task Force on Biological Weapons.

Dr. Atlas recently testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee’s terrorism subcommittee and came to our meeting to bring us all up to date on current and proposed legislation that attempts to deal with the issue of biological weapons and helped us look at the possible impact it is going to have on our institutions.
