South Dakota State University (SDSU) has won a Defense Department contract to evaluate U.S. veterinary diagnostic laboratories' efforts to keep disease-causing microbes and toxins safely inside the labs.

"Laboratory security has been a sensitive issue for infectious disease diagnostic and research laboratories, especially since (Sept. 11, 2001)," said David Zeman, head of SDSU's veterinary and biomedical sciences department and ADRDL director. "Securing the pathogens we work with is important so that those intent on malicious activities will not have access to them. This study has the potential to provide significant updated data that can be used by other animal health laboratories and research units across the country to assess their vulnerabilities."
