  27-11-2018

Then you are welcome to join our presentation this Wednesday!
When: November 28th at 12.15-12.45
Where: Outside of the Medical Library at the Umeå University Hospital.

Vegetarian/Vegan lunch sandwiches, tea and coffee will be served to the first 50 people.

Topic:
Bioterrorism is a specifically frightening form of terrorism, where use of hazardous materials, especially microorganisms, poses a very different type of threat compared to other forms.

Bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms can be found everywhere. They can be spread easily and can’t be seen with the naked eye. In addition, some of them are excellent killers. Does this not make the perfect recipe for disaster?
