Alternative Vision for the BU Biolab

After almost eight years of struggle to stop the BU BSL4 lab, the Roxbury Safety Net and the Coalition to Stop the Bio-Terror Lab have arrived at a critical moment.  Our scientists are proposing an alternative vision for the BU laboratory, one that would focus its research on prevalent natural diseases and utilize new, safe vaccine and antimicrobial technologies.  By doing so, Boston University could make a major contribution to public health without the hazards of working with dangerous pathogens that require BSL4 laboratories.
