$1.3M UC grant to help kill biological agents in WMDs

University of Cincinnati bioaerosol experts have received a $1.3 million basic science grant to research a new method for killing the biological agents most likely to be used in weapons of mass destruction. According to UC HealthNews, the goal of the team is to create a single, self-contained compound that can be released into the air following an explosion to target and destory dangerous biological agents. UC researchers have partnered with the New Jersey Institute of Technology and its business incubator, Reactive Metals, Inc., to develop the prototype of a nanocomposite material. Funding for the project comes from the U.S. Department of Defense's Defense Threat Reduction Agency.
