The University of Nebraska Board Regents voted Thursday to coordinate all of the University of Nebraska Medical Center's infectious diseases and biodefense research by establishing the Global Center for Health Security. 

The center will further the clinical care, training, clinical research and scientific research in infectious diseases. 

“The Global Center for Health Security brings together our existing programs into an integrated leadership structure to improve coordination of programs,” Dr. Jennifer Larsen, vice chancellor for research at UNMC, said in a relase. “We’ll continue to attract and build on our expertise in combating bioterrorism, both prevention and treatment, and mitigating the consequences of bioterrorism through education and policy development.”
