Making the world safe and secure from emerging infectious and neglected tropical diseases by applying One Health – the synergy of animal, human, and environmental sciences – to global health and security.
Operation Whitecoat refers to a biomedical research program conducted by the United States Army during the Cold War. 2,300 individuals volunteered themselves to participate in experiments meant to develop countermeasures to the Soviet Union’s bio-warfare program. Although most of us are unaware of this historical contribution to science, the implications of these studies and their participants are still resonating in the research community today.
Come watch a documentary on this subject with us and then engage in a discussion with our panel, including the movie’s director, Randall Larsen.
As light movie snacks will be provided, please RSVP for the event here.
Special thanks to Aimee-Joy Cork and Jade Haberman for their organizing efforts.
