Centre for Biological Threats and Special Pathogens

Head:
Lars Schaade
Deputy:
Roland Grunow

The Centre for Biological Threats and Special Pathogens (Zentrum für Biologische Gefahren und Spezielle Pathogene, ZBS) has the mission (1) to identify unusual biological events with highly pathogenic agents that might be used with bioterrorist intent. (2) In addition, ZBS assesses the health implications for the general public and (3) works on preparedness and response for such incidents. This also includes informing decision-makers and professionals on incidents and to advise and support them on measures to be taken accordingly. In summary, in managing biological incidents, the centre’s tasks include

  • identification,
  • preparedness,
  • information,
  • response.

The centre’s work is not limited exclusively to the identification, assessment and handling of possible bioterrorist attacks. Rather the skills already acquired and those to be developed are also used for the investigation of natural outbreaks or those caused by accidents involving special and highly pathogenic agents and toxins.
