Biotechnology to protect soldiers of the future, report says

ested that these capsules could one day detect when a soldier has been exposed to biological warfare agents, and dispense appropriate antidotes. The same kind of capsule could dispense antibiotics to injured soldiers, as well, if needed.

The report committee outlined several recommendations for how the Army should proceed in developing biotechnology. Among its conclusions, the committee recommended that the Army should:

collaborate with researchers in industry and academia who are already investigating biotechnology for commercial applications, and provide funding in these areas; work with the government to find ways to expedite the development of products that could potentially benefit soldiers confronted with an urgent threat or special need; and address the general public's concerns with the ethical aspects of biotechnology.

Ferrari's colleagues on the report committee included researchers from University of California, Berkeley; Case Western Reserve University; University of Connecticut; University of Georgia; Massachusetts Institute of Technology; University of Michigan; Princeton University; and Purdue University. Representatives from General Motors, Photonic Sensor Systems, Inc., Cepheid, Inc., TranXenoGen, Inc., and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency served on the committee as well.
