October 19, 2017 @ 2:00pm ET

Caesar’s Last Breath and the Fascinating Science and History of the Air We Breathe

Every lab has chemicals that are vital to research and experimentation but these same chemicals whether you are in industry or academia, can be stolen and used by non-state actors for malevolent acts.  Join Andrew Nelson of Sandia National Laboratories as he introduces strategies to mitigate the risks that small labs and universities face with theft of chemicals for chemical weapons, explosives, and illicit drug production.

What You Will Learn

  • Why chemical security is important to all labs with current examples of incidents
